Local Farms in the mid-1900s

Former Carmel resident and long-time CCHS member John Graves spent hundreds of hours compiling information about farms in Carmel and Clay Township in the mid-1900s. He has recorded histories of 71 farms, included historic and contemporary photographs, and indicated those farms’ locations on maps. He continues to seek additional information about these and other farms that may not be included here. If you are familiar with Carmel’s agricultural history in the mid-1900s, please visit Information Needed on Carmel Clay Farms to see if you can help fill in the blanks. Contact John Graves at johngtmti@aol.com with any information you may have.
