Kinder Farm Park is named for a German immigrant family who made multiple land purchases in Millersville beginning in 1898. Over the next 50 years Gustave Kinder and his younger brother Henry Kinder turned initial purchases of land into a successful 600 acre agricultural operation. Gustave sold his property to Henry in the early 1940’s and another brother Herman sold his remaining property to Henry and his sons in 1952.
