check out the General Park Map,  or McCulloch Park Map 


McCulloch Park was acquired from Hugh McCulloch, a Fort Wayne resident and treasury secretary under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant.  The donated land was used as a public cemetery until those buried there were relocated to Lindenwood Cemetery for reasons of sanitation.  McCulloch Park features a historic bandstand and the memorial grave site of Indiana's seventh governor, Samuel Bigger.  Governor Bigger remains in his original resting place because he had no family to authorize a reburial.
