Located on the west bank of the St. Joseph River across from the IPFW campus, the 152 acre farm belonging to the estate of William T. McKay, in 1988 was purchased for the university by four donors: Lincoln National Life Insurance Co., the Olive B. Cole Foundation, the Foellinger Foundation and the M.E. Raker Foundation. The terms of the gift required that a master plan for use of the land be created by June 1, 1995, and that there be at least one million dollars in development there by June 1, 1988.
