John W. Pietenpohl

John W. Pietenpohl operated one of the largest sugar bushes in Clark County during the 1930s, tapping up to 1,400 maple trees.  Located just off of County Trunk K, two miles northwest of Granton, Pietenpohl lived in the cooking shack for a month during the maple sap melting-down process, tending the fires, sap pans and canning of the syrup.
