Turn east on Lakeview Drive and follow around to the right.

Perched on a hill at 2381 Old Home Court is the stately Tobias–Zimmer House, built in 1859 by Peter Tobias.  The land was originally deeded to Jesse Hunt via a land grant and subsequently divided.  It was so densely wooded that it became known as “The Big Woods”.  An early schoolhouse was built in 1839 on a half acre of land donated by then owner, Henry Ankeney.  The limestone front step and school bell can still be seen in the front yard!  The Shaker construction features hand hewn, mortised and pinned white oak frame construction with walnut woodwork.

In 1950, Bob Zimmer purchased the 103 acre farm from the Batdorf family, which ran Miami Valley’s largest turkey farm onsite in the 1940’s.
