For Sale: Original Pulskamp Farmstead in Indiana

Posted on November 15, 2007 - Filed Under Family history, World Wide Gathering of the Pulskamps

The Pulskamp family arrived in New York on July 5, 1845, and just weeks later, on August 9, purchased a farm in Franklin County, Indiana. That farm is now on the market!

The property, located at 3078 Horseshoe Bend Road, Brookville, Indiana, 47012, is listed at $274,000 and includes 31.75 acres. 12 acres are tillable, with the remainder as pasture and woods. There is a new custom build horse barn, 35 x 68 feet with 8 stalls and a hay bale maul with wooden floor for holding up to 1,800 bales of hay. Also, there is a custom built 30 x 50 three car garage with cathedral ceiling so a loft could be added.barnoriglfarmindiana.jpg

The older block farmhouse needs remodeling, but already has a newer gas furnace (5 years old), water heater, natural gas heat, and 200 amp service box. This house is not the original farmhouse, as that burned down, but is instead the second farm house that the Pulskamp family built.

The plumbing to the house is new. There are two wells on the property, one used for the house, View from the Original Farm the other for livestock. It is probably possible to connect to city water for a fee. There is an established hay field of ten acres. The realtor says it would make a good horse farm with your own hay.Block House on Pulskamp Property The property is located between St. Peters and St. Mary on the Rock, five miles from I-74, 40 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, seven miles south of Brookwille (county seat) and twelve miles east of Batesville.
