Bluffton, Indiana, was nicknamed “The Parlor City” over a century ago because its paved streets (a new phenomenon at the time) made the city “as clean as your parlor."
There's a Basinger residence on South Main Street with a horse hitching post. Lately, several horses have been hitched to the post, as seen in this photo taken last weekend. The Icon has its own views on "who dunit." The list includes several prominent residents. One holds an annual garage sale on North Jackson. Another has a "Rich" heritage of doing this sort of entertainment.
