This was a “Green Grocer” farm where vegetables were grown and sold to the residents of Kendallville and the surrounding area. Now trees, including many redbuds, grow where corn and beans and other produce once grew. Round Lake forms a wetland boundary along the northeast part of the preserve. Plants include shrubby cinquefoil, red osier dogwood, cattails and sedges. Birds are as varied as the plants, and deer are frequently seen.
