Henerhoff Field

In 1855, when a school was built on the ground adjoining the south boundary of the cemetery, a new location was planned to move the existing cemetery. The new cemetery was named Oakland Cemetery and is still in use. Those buried in the first cemetery were moved to the new location.

In 1927, a new building was erected for relocation of the Warsaw School at 340 South n” Street and the school building at 10th and Main stood empty. Warsaw School District #316 donated the property to the Warsaw Park District. The Warsaw Park District named the park Geode Glenn, in accordance with the lay of the land, “glen” meaning a narrow secluded valley.

Geode Glenn has many amenities including Henerhoff baseball field, two authentic log cabins that date back to Warsaw early settlers, a newly renovated shelter house with water and electric, hiking trails, and a beautiful narrow creek Valley. Although the area is abundant with geodes, it is unlawful to hunt, collect, or possess geodes, or archaeological artifacts or materials within the park.

Henerhoff Field is located at 240 South 10th Street, or 40.3580999,-91.4296648.
