Fancy Farm Picnic even made it into the Guinness Record Book as the "World's Largest Picnic"
This is the site of the first attempt to teach agriculture in the state of Indiana. The Quakers of Baltimore, in the spring of 1804, were invited by Little Turtle, the great Miami Chief. Philip Dennis was the instructor of agriculture for the Indians of the Wabash Valley. Photograph taken October 1938. Courtesy of Otto Winiger.
