The Kimmel House: A Country Mansion and Restaurant
One of my favorite things is to take a drive down a country road in Indiana. You never know what you'll find and last week as I was working on the Tombstone Trail story for the Northwest Indiana Times (that's another post) I drove south of Ligonier down State Road 5 through a series of small villages and came upon this wonderful 19th century Italianate home, now a bed and breakfast called the Kimmel House after the original owners. There's also a restaurant in the home open to the public and though I got there a little too late, I'm going to try to make it down again before the fall leaves are all gone.
