Hovander Homestead Park is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a destination for hikers, picnickers, weddings, and family reunions alike. It includes a turn-of-the-century farmhouse, barn, garden, Veterans Memorial, access to the Nooksack River, farm animals and equipment, and several large fields. A working garden sits to the north side of the Homestead house, and all the food grown there is given to the food bank. Several master gardener gardens are on-site, near the house, and have descriptive signs to designate each plant.
In 1901 Hugo Hovander laid the first brickwork, including chimneys and a fireplace, which burned six-foot logs. The next year, carpenters worked with 52,000 board feet of native fir to frame, roof and side the home. Virtually every detail crafted by Hovander and his sons remain intact today. The inside of the Hovander house has been restored to its original elegant state.
