The tree first appeared in 1870. Shortly after its appearance, four more trees appeared. The city fathers feared that the trees would damage the roof and hired a steepljack in 1888 to remove all but two. One of these died, but the other grew to a height of about fifteen feet. This one died, but another grew in its place. Thus, there has been a continuous line of trees growing on the roof of the courthouse since 1870. Early on, the tree was identified as aspen, however an examination by Purdue foresters has determined the present one is a mulberry.

Mrs. Frank Selmier donated this 355 acre parcel to Indiana on behalf of her husband. Frank Selmier had a strong interest in the outdoors. He planted several acres on this property of pine, black locust, black walnut, sycamore and tuliptree from 1921 to 1934. Most of the property was placed in Indiana's Classified Forest Program between 1927 and 1931. The forest has several short nature trails on the property. There are no public facilities of any kind on the property. Hikers should wear hunter orange clothing during hunting seasons, as the DNR allows hunting in the forest. The Muscatatuck River forms the eastern boundary of the Forest.
