Why Jonah’s Run

Our farm is adjacent to Jonah’s Run,  one of the many tributaries of Caesar’s Creek. Karen Campbell, genealogy librarian at the Mary L Cook Library says, “Jonah’s Run… is named after the earliest known white resident in the Warren Co.-Clinton Co. area, Jonah Eaton. For ten years he lived on the north bank of Jonah’s Run Creek about half a mile from Caesar Creek in a living tree house; literally in its hollow trunk, which was big enough for a room. The interior was said to have been 10′ X 7′ and high enough for a man to stand in. At a certain point he added on a porch before the entrance. The site of his unique house is now covered by the waters of Caesars Creek Lake.” Sharing a border with this unique piece of history made Jonah’s Run Farm a natural choice.
