It’s interesting to note some of the farming families with lasting legacy in the local area. A few families can actually trace their roots to when the original settlers came to the area. Since the 1840s, the Fisher family has owned land in Van Buren Township, Kosciusko County, near Milford. More specifically, on County Road 250 East near County Road 1100 North. This is also near where the Syracuse-Milford Railway once came through as I have previously posted about. The barn shown in the photo was built in 1915 according to the Kosciusko County property records found online. That would obviously make it more than 100 years old. It is a bank barn, which is common in this area, but what is unusual is it is banked on two sides. I’m not sure if I have seen many barns like this, if any at all. The land around the house and barn is still farmed, though the current property owner cash rents it to a nearby farmer.
