We returned to Heaton, in Wells County, nearly six years after our first trip in 2004, to find things had changed noticeably.
This is an animation showing the former Heaton Bank and the Hawks of Heaton Gift Shop (which we believe may have been the Post Office at one time as well). As you can see, sometime between 2004 and 2010, the structures disappeared. We don’t know what happened to them. Several homes which used to stand in Heaton are gone now as well.
