John and Katharine Podjun purchased the land this farm sits on in 1914, and moved there in the summer of that year. At the time, the land was recently cut timber. The Podjuns slowly constructed a complex of farm buildings between 1914 and 1930. The entire property is still owned by Podjun family members.
The Podjun Farm is an L-shaped tract of land covering 120 acres (49 ha). The buildings include an I-house-style farmhouse,a gambrel-roof barn, a granary/corn crib, and a machine shed. The farm also includes crop fields, an orchard, pasture, a woodlot, red pine plantations, and areas of cedar swamp. Springs on the property form the headwaters of the Little Manistee River.
