The Kelly Farm

I recieved a short note from Tom Dunwoody today saying the CFA had gotten together and made the necessary although temporary repairs to the Kelly Farm that was vandalized a few weeks ago to preserve it through the winter.

For those that might not know, this was the original Terrell Jacobs farm just outside Peru, Indiana. Arthur Wirtz bought it then sold it a few years later to Paul and Dorothy Kelly. It was also the final resting place to the Cole Bros. Circus equipment. The Kelly family remained in the circus business for years housing their animals there and many showfolk stayed over while enroute as well.
