"Bonneyville Mill" ... a river's legacy


Built in 1837, Bonneyville Mill is designated by the Indiana State Historical Society as the oldest continuously operating grist mill in Indiana. It is the most photographed and painted destination spot in Elkhart County.

 Filmed in all four seasons of the year, you will feel as though you are personally inside the mill, outside along the river, and among the flowers. Beautiful aerial scenes offer a perspective of the area from above that cannot be seen from the ground.

"Stories from Silence"

(Elkhart History - Part 2)

Cemeteries with names such as Grace Lawn, Rice, Prairie Street, St. Vincent, and Middleton are full of stories most of which have become forgotten except for those of a few people whom have become famous, if even only locally. Beneath the stones rest those who have answered only to their God about the lives they’ve led.

The integrity and virtue of the men and women who helped build this community is still inherent in the stone monuments they have left us. As we learn about their stories anonymity begins to give place to history.

Perhaps the architecture and the stories that rest in these cemeteries are for us to admire and wonder.
