Once a natural clearing to a forest, Huntertown is not surprisingly home to Munro Nature Preserve. This bicentennial forest has been under protection since the 1960s. It covers an area between northeast Indiana, northwest Ohio, and southern Michigan. The priority of the ACRES Preserve is to maintain the native wildlife, plants, and natural land formations.
Though the preserve stands at 25.6 acres, there is currently only a half mile worth of trail accessible to the public. This location also plays homage to the Brushwood School House. The property was made famous by the acclaimed naturalist Gene Stratton-Porter who mentioned it in his book A Girl of the Limberlost, which is considered an Indiana classic. The birds, trees, and wildlife described in Stratton-Porter’s book can be seen in the preserve.
