National honor sought for farm dating to early 1800sApril 2, 2019

BLOOMINGTON — Officials in a southern Indiana county hope to have a farmstead that was settled nearly 200 years ago added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Monroe County officials obtained permission from the Tate-Tatum Farm’s current owners before making their request for the 119-acre property to be added to the national registry.
The farm was settled by John and Susanna Tate, who had moved from Tennessee to southern Monroe County.
County Planner Jacqueline Nester says many of the farm’s original structures remain in decent shape, including a two-story log house and a double-crib log barn believed built in 1822.
The Herald-Times reports that the couple who currently owns the property operates a wedding venue, Whippoorwill Hill, at the site, farm a portion of the land and also raise cattle there.
