The Knoepfli Farmhouse

Jacob and Elizabeth Knoepfli, a German Swiss couple located on Lot 13 Con.8 Croft Township on March 24, 1888. The Knoepflis lived in a house now referred to as the Farmhouse, which still stands today across from the main lodge of Knoepfli Inn. The upper level of this building has two self-contained rooms which are rented out today. When Pagets built the Inn they named it after the Knoepflis and the Knoepfli Rapids which border one side of property.
