Saddlebag Farmhouse, Dodge County

The saddlebag is a double-pen form which is almost always associated with tenant and sharecropping operations. It uses one chimney to heat both sides of the house.

Each room is a mirror image of the other. This example, like many, features a shed room across the rear of the structure.
