This is Martin Miller Porter's Homestead in Momence, Kankakee, Illinois, United States.
Martin, his wife, Mary Ellen Dutcher Porter, and their seven children lived in this home from 1890-1915. At least 3 of their children were born in this house. They did not sell this home, but did move into town in 1924. Where they lived at 324 Locust Street in Momence.
Their son Leslie Porter moved into the farm house, and raised his family there.
Mary Ellen Dutcher wrote a dairy that was very detailed, and I have one year's worth of her writings, which are very interesting to read.
