In 2000, Lyle and Sally Loomis donated their family farm to the Wood County Park District. At the same time, they granted a conservation agreement to Black Swamp Conservancy ensuring the property’s permanent protection. The property has been developed into a depression-era living history site. Life and farming in the 1930s are recreated through interactive programming utilizing the original homestead and barns. This Chronolog will track the development of a 20-acre restored wetland that we restored in 2019 -- which expands wildlife habitat on the property and enhances the Park District’s opportunities for interpretive programming.
