Markham Area

The general area between Markham's Cemetery, Markhams Rd (CR 57), Dole St. and School St.  If you turned on School St. the private residence on the right used to be the Markham School and further back from the house Markham-German Cemetery.  Residents of Fair Plain and Markham are buried here.  Also back in this area was the Markham-German Swamp.  You can see why it may have been called a swamp as the creek still runs through the area and floods over at times.  There is also the foundation of the former German Lutheran Church.  If you took School St. to Markham's Rd., then back to Rt. 62 that general area was home to many German families.  Some of the families hired out until they earned enough money to buy their own farm.
