First Explore true Variety in plant life at Rich Farm Garden and one of the largest seed selections in the country.  Also on the farm is an old Barn that was built out of oak (some beams as long as 50 ft.) with amenities that were built in to this barn in 1905 that were state of the art and the farm was awarded status of:  "The most modern farm in Indiana".  Now, depending on the time of your visit, you may be able to see little chicks and ducklings, pet the rabbits, chase the blue turkeys, and meet a low-line angus that is full grown at only 38 inches tall, or Ms. M the friendly organic milk cow.

The Winchester Speedway
Worlds fastest 1/2 mile race track

Winchester Speedway is a half-mile paved steep-bank oval motor racetrack known as the "World's Fastest 1/2 mile" Currently home to the "Winchester 400" and other racing events. In it's history racing events have included NASCAR, USAC, and we had one customer in our store who remembered racing her motorcycle there in 1916. Winchester has been a hot spot for racing even back to the 1800's when an oval race track went around the site of the town of Woodland era Adenas and gave a 1300 feet by 1000 feet oval track observed by 19th century spectators who were seated on the earthwork mounds that had been built around 200 BC by those ancient people.

Fort Recovery park
Fort Recovery on the Greenville Treaty Line
Woodland period stone tool
More Woodland era artifacts such as this gorgett can be viewed at the Fort Recovery Museum. The fort was built on the Greenville Treaty line which marked the indian territory boundary in 1795. This ground that our barn is on now, was on the indian side of the 1795 treaty line and when the line moved in 1809, called the 12 Mile Purchase, this spot became U.S. territory. The westward migration of U.S. & foreign peoples mostly went around this area by Ohio river or Great lakes for many years. Some say that an earthquake had caused a 50 mile wide swath of fallen timbers which hindered road building through here; but the very existence of this fort proves there was way more going on.
