I am going to let you guess on this one for a while. Yes it is still standing. No it is not next to a road.

Yep, Travis is right.
Peter Olaf Hoult was born in Sweden in 1853. He immigrated in 1869. He died in Mount Vernon, WA in March of 1925. He is buried in Mount Vernon, WA. His two sons Carl Milton and Walter are buried in our local cemetery.... as is, probably his wife Otellia, although I think there is no name marker for her.

Peter is listed on the 1887 Camas Prairie Census. He is single.
Peter married Otillia Sundgren in Kansas in 1899. She was about twenty years younger than he.
In the 1920 Camas Prairie Census he is married to Otelia Hoult and they live at their farm, Glemora Hamlet. Also listed are sons Walter age 15 and Carl age 10. A son Arthur died in infancy.

Otellia later married Ed Shaw.

Peter helped establish the Glenwood Grange which was built on a donated acreage of the Trenner place. Trenner was the original owner of the Leaton Ranch.

I don’t know for sure that Hoult built this barn. The owners of the property aren’t sure either. They just call it the “Old Hoult Place”.
In one of Herman Kuhnhausen's book he talks about traveling from his home, through this place to the Hilding place, which I think is the Doc Keller place.

Here is some of the information I have gathered about the Hoult family.
