Samuel Moore Donates Old Town Park for Old Settlers (Mooresville Moments Series)

In today's reprinting of Mooresville Moments (August 4, 1999), local historian and retired librarian Wanda Potts recalled the establishment of "Old Town Park" on South Street on land donated to the Town of Mooresville, Indiana, by Samuel Moore, founder of the town. This land was to be used for the annual Old Settlers Picnic and Reunion, and the gathering was held there until 1995, when it moved to the newer, larger Pioneer Park on Indianapolis Road.
