Wolfe Farm Part of Early Clark County History

Wolfe Farm Part of Early Clark County History

 

Henry Williams Sr. was the founder of this Clark County Bicentennial Farm, acquiring 180 acres in Bethel Township in 1805. Henry and Elizabeth came from Greenbrier County, Virginia to join family members already in the area. They made the journey on two horses, bringing with them their four children – the youngest of the children was 3-month old Henry Jr. Henry Jr. would eventually take over the farm in 1845.

A barn built in 1835 is still in use today. Their home was built in 1913.

Jay and Carolyn Wolfe represent the sixth generation of the family to own their Bicentennial Farm.

Today they raise corn, soybeans, hay and a cow-calf herd on the farm’s 135 acres.

  1. Wow, I was so excited to find this – I am a descendant of Henry & Elizabeth Williams. I visited this farm when I was a child, my father is Nelson, so happy to see a wonderful heritage being preserved.
