In 2017, the Clay Township Trustee, together with Carmel Clay Historical Society and the Carmel Clay Public Library, debuted a film featuring the history of Two Gaits Farm, which encompassed the area on which The Village Farms was developed. Featuring the firsthand accounts of Carmel resident Dick McNamara, who was raised on the farm, the film recounts the fascinating history of the area including its ties to many famous harness racing horses. These horses serve as the inspiration for the street names chosen by developer Ralph Wilfong across our community.
The 32-minute film, entitled Historical Farms of Clay Township Indiana - Two Gaits Farm, can be found on YouTube in its entirety.
Enjoy this fascinating part of our Carmel-Westfield history!
