Hall family farm barn in Clunette

The Hall family has owned farmland on the edge of the tiny unincorporated community of Clunette, Kosciusko County, since the 1830s. Clunette is located in Prairie Township. This English style barn was built in the 1870s by the Amish. It is a beautiful testament to a long family farming heritage becoming increasingly rare in an age of corporate farming and fewer family farms. The Halls still own the land but the farming is done by someone outside the family.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
