Hudnut, also known as Clinton Locks, is an unincorporated community in western Florida Township, Parke County, in the U.S. state of Indiana, just east of Clinton.[2]

History[edit]

A post office called Hudnut was established in 1887, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1893.[3] The community derives its name from the firm of Hudnut and Company, which owned property on the Wabash and Erie Canal.[4]
