Starke County was created in 1835 and organized in 1850. The county was named after General John Stark who was commander of the New Hampshire troops at the Battle of Bunker Hill (1775) in the Revolutionary War. Knox is the county seat for Starke.
Starke County is the home of Bass Lake, a peculiar lake in Indiana due to its shallowness and long, sandy beaches. It is possible to talk long distances from the shore before reaching deep water. The lake’s maximum depth was 32 feet and the average less than 9 feet. Springs under the surface and a few flowing wells maintain the lake’s water level. Bass Lake is the only Indiana lake that provides good fishing for walleyed pike over a long period of years and one of a few lakes in the state where white bass are plentiful.
Starke County boasts an interesting past, including the birth of the only 2 headed calf on the Thompson Farm in 1938. The calf was born with 2 natural full-size heads, four hind legs and one body. Starke County was also the home of Che Mah, the smallest man in the world, prior to his death in 1926. Che Mah was only 28 inches tall and weight 40 pounds. He was brought to the United States in 1881 by Barnum and Bailey Circus.Short-Term and Long-Term Disability
