History of Forest Park:
Forest Park was developed by Otis A. Gerhart, G. Delton Gerhart, and J. Morgan Gerhart. This home was completed in 1924. Their creed was "To plan well; to construct faithfully and intelligently; to create something lasting, standing out as a monument of perfection, an example of proper city development; to place character above every other consideration; these have been our ideals in the development of our subdivisions." In planning Forest Park practically every tree was left where God put it, and these were supplemented by several hundred more, carefully selected for size, type and variety, and planted in a manner to preserve and improve the landscape. ForestPark is located in the west end of Kokomo and covers about 50 acres. The land was purchased from "Uncle Billie Moore". It had been deeded to his father from the United States Government nearly 185 years ago. The layout of Forest Park was made by Louis S. Cole, a landscape architect and city planner of Chicago.
This information was obtain from Building Developer published in June 1928
