Berne Clock Tower – Berne, Indiana

Johnny Appleseed's Grave Site Forty-five minutes south of Fort Wayne is a little Amish town called Berne.  The founders immigrated from Switzerland by way of Ohio.  A lot of the architecture reminds me of what I think of when I've seen Swiss architecture.  I felt as though I was in another world when I was… Continue reading Berne Clock Tower – Berne, Indiana

This year… Continue reading Halloween at the Zoo (Part 1) – Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo
