Blackford County High School Trail to Open November 29

The Blackford County High School Trail project is nearly completed and waiting only on the official opening November 29. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be scheduled for later. The hiking trail is the result of a five year effort by the Blackford Greenway, Inc. group to raise the funds for the project. Most of the funds for the 1.94 mile trail were gathered through state and federal grants. Additional monies were provided from local redevelopment funds and from individual donors contributing to a matching program available through the Foundation and Lilly Endowment Inc.
