Some early pioneers have left traces of their heritage in Turkey Run State Park. Built by the first European settlers to own the land (also the first settlers in this area), the historical Lusk home and mill site are reminders of early enterprise and ambition.

Acquiring the land in 1825, Captain Lusk built a grist mill that was completed in 1829. The Lusk home was completed in 1841. The Lusk's stewardship of the land preserved the pristine nature of the land.

The restored home is open for tours seasonally. For more information, please call the park office.

A parking lot and pit toilet are also located behind Lusk Home.
