OHU50K Notes $85,000
Save this old California fixer upper farm with two dilapidated homes, grain bins, outbuilding, 5.23 level acres and views! There’s something about this place that touches me, especially when I look at the 2012 Google Map street view. It looked lovely back then.
The old farm is located near the Oregon border in a town established in 1937. Per cityoftulelake.com, “After World War II a land lottery was held for Veterans who won 80 and 160 acres for field preparation and cultivation for potatoes, onions, horseradish, mint, alfalfa, grain and most recently strawberry and raspberry plants.” It became known as the “Potato Capital of the World” due to its significant potato production.
On the dark side of history, per Tule Lake National Monument, the town held “the largest and most controversial of the sites where Japanese Americans were incarcerated during World War II, and Camp Tulelake, which was first a Civilian Conservation Corps camp, then an additional facility to detain Japanese Americans, and finally a prisoner of war camp.” On the other side of town was an internment camp for Italians and Germans.
