The Barton Homestead is a farmhouse owned by Clint Barton in Iowa. Initially set up for him by Nick Fury, the famhouse enabled him and his wife, Laura Barton, to peacefully live and raise their children here while keeping out of the public eye. After the Ultron Offensive, Barton relocated his family to a new farmhouse. The farmhouse's existence was soon made aware to the authorities following the Avengers Civil War, where Barton agreed to serve a house arrest sentence.

History

First Homestead

Off the Records

"Fury helped me set this up when I joined. He kept it off S.H.I.E.L.D.’s files."
Clint Barton[src]

When Clint Barton was recruited into S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury made sure his family's existence would be kept secret, setting up the farmhouse as a secure, isolated place where they could live in safety, located in Iowa. Its inhabitants include Barton, his wife Laura, and his two children, Cooper and Lila. The only other person to know of this arrangement was Barton's partner and best friend, Natasha Romanoff.[2]

After the Avengers' loss to Ultron, nightmares from Wanda Maximoff, and an outbreak of the Hulk, Clint Barton decided to take the team to his home, where they could lay low and collect themselves. Clint landed the Quinjet outside the house, which the team thought was a safe house, as they made their way towards it.

When they entered, they discovered Clint being greeted by Laura, who was revealed as his wife that they were not aware of. Following this surprise, Cooper and Lila appeared, and Clint hugged his family, while everyone but Natasha Romanoff stood there, shocked. As Clint and Romanoff reunited with the family, Thor exited the house and went off to go find answers for the visions he saw earlier. The Avengers then got changed and each went and did their own thing.

Steve Rogers and Tony Stark argue

Meanwhile, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers went to chop wood outside as they recovered, where they discussed the future of the team after Maximoff showed them something about their past, future, or dark side. When they started arguing, they were interrupted by Laura who asked if Stark could fix their tractor, so he left Rogers to help her.
