In March 2007, Clarence Miller, officially donated his 131 acre farm, now known as Red Orchard Park, to Shelby County’s Parks Department which had been his family’s home since 1925. Aquilla Whitaker planted the orchard around 1792. Aquilla was a settler in the now Shelby County – Whitaker Station, an important refuge for early settlers in the region. She and her husband John, helped to establish the town of Shelbyville. The orchard was said to turn a brilliant red in the fall; thus the name “Red Orchard”. The park consists of 131 beautiful acres of rolling land, lush pasture and gorgeous mature trees such as walnut, blue ash, and sycamore. There is no shortage of space for enjoyment of various activities. Red Orchard Park is a nature lovers paradise and offers a wide variety recreational activities for all ages.
