The Utzman Farm House is located where State Highway 31 splits into South Street and Spur 63 and is addressed as 602 W. South Street. This structure is a minimal traditional style home that was built in 1938 by R.J. Whittington for Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Utzman.
Minimal Traditional style homes were predominate in the 30's through the 50's when it was replaced by the popular Ranch style homes. The Minimal Traditional style is loosely based on the Colonial and Tudor style homes with as little ornamentation as possible.
This style typically includes a forward facing gable, small covered porch, no eaves, and lapped wood siding of wood as well as shake, brick, or stone facing. They are generally asymmetrical with the front entrance off center. Minimal Traditional style homes were often fairly small cottage-size single- to two story homes with practical floor plans.
The property where the house sits was originally owned by O.H. Methvin and purchased by the Marvin Utzman's father George V. Utzman Jr.
