Brownsburg purchases land for new park (1958)

source: Danville Gazette (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, May 8, 1958 - page 10, column 3:

According to a newspaper article, in May 1958 the Brownsburg town council arranged to buy a 39 acre piece of land from Mrs. Ivory Tolle, at a cost of $25,000, in order to build a park. The land was described as being "immediately north of the railroad" and "at the northwest edge of the town."

NOTE: Today this park is known as Arbuckle Acres (address 200 North Green Street).
