From a Weisenberg Township map of 1876. Solomon Holben was living on the original Holbenfarm in that year. The road south from Weisenberg church past Solomon Holben's is still there. It is a dirt road, and Holbens are still living on the land. Although three houses now occupy the site, one of them is a log house with a stone foundation. Its age is unknown and modern siding now hides the charm of its original state.
