In 1958, tragedy struck George Carl Hillenbrand – “Uncle George.” A horrendous fire tore through his Pony Farm in Greensburg, Indiana decimating his prized stock of thoroughbred trotters and ponies. In 1960 Uncle George and his wife, “Aunt Peg”, decided to rebuild the Pony Farm. The same vision and foresight that made Uncle George one of America’s greatest industrial engineers was put into building “Walhill Farm”, 15 miles south of his first farm, on the outskirts of Batesville, Indiana. Today Walhill Farm stands as a testament to his strength and character. So come inside and learn a little bit about this Southern Indiana legend and the fulfillment of his dream.
