COLUMBIA CITY â Visit the Schuman family farm in Columbia City and time slows down to the pace of yesterday.
The Schuman family farm was established in 1854 and was recently recognized with the Hoosier Homestead Award for the farmâs longevity.
The legacy of the Schuman farm may be documented for others to see in photographs, but to the family, the legacy is a life they lived and is a part of them.

The Eagles are coming to grips with a rash of injuries that have hit the team hard.
