Originally "Old Lane Farm" consisting of 600 acres surrounding the Georgian mansion of Frederick Crapo and Mildred Kitselman Crapo. Mr. Crapo was president of Indiana Steel and Wire and was the inventor of numerous industrial products and processes including the galvanizing process for wire.

Because of its location on a large estate, surrounded by timber, the house the Crapos built, although one of East Central Indiana's most spectacular, was kept in low public profile and quite secluded. General farming operations were carried out, including dairy cattle. The barn was modernized to house horses and a riding ring was added; "Old Lane Farm" became an equestrian site.

The New York Firm of Peabody, Wilson, and Brown, Architects designed the 1937 mansion — still standing today and the nucleus of Saddle Brook. Learn more about the "Old Lane Farm."
