Park History

adams-farmAdam’s Township Community Park is located on the former Karl Wirth property consisting of 103+ acres off of Three Degree Road.

Mr. and Mrs. Wirth acquired the property from his brothers and sisters over a course of years who had inherited the property from their parents, Andrew and Sarah Jane Blakely. The Blakely’s had purchased the property November 26, 1890. Mr. Blakely had,¬† for a short period of time, sold the property to Rayburn and Edna Mae Morrow in 1939 but re-acquired it in 1942. Ownership prior to 1890 has not been established. Adams Township purchased the property from Mr. Wirth August 5, 1997, with the stipulation¬† that the property remains as a park under municipal control.
