Klinkhart History Notes

2020 was a difficult year all around, but among other things it gave us some time to dig further into our past.

The Klinkhart History Notes posted here offer some glimpses of what we learned about historic Klinkhart Hall . . . and perhaps suggest what its future might look like when it is once again the place 
“where art and community meet.”

More Klinkhart History Notes to come!
