Al Hart ’69 has teamed with Wikipedia to offer more information to the world on Montgomery County. Al states the most fun was researching and photographing a little known part of county called Balhinch (one of his photos above).
Al has already provided more historic information on such other well known locales like New Richmond (where the movie Hoosiers was filmed), Deers Mill, Waveland, Alamo, and Linden. Check out Montgomery County on Wikipedia here.
The photo below (also from Al) is of a marker in Balhinch recognizing William Offield, the first settler of Balhinch in 1821. That’s a long time ago – Wabash College wouldn’t be founded for another 11 years.
Thanks Al – this is obviously a labor of love!
