You’ll find this old country General Store, today operating as an inn and restaurant, in the middle of nowhere in Brown County, Indiana.

This dot on the map was an important little village until the Great Depression did it in. But I’m getting ahead of myself — come back tomorrow to read the story of Story, which is what this village is called.

I made this photograph on my first visit to Story a few years ago.

    Probably 20 years ago I led a group of fellow MG drivers to Story for a stay, enjoyed a road called the Hogsback on the way. Also visited Spring Mill, Madisonville (I think the RR tracks going up the hill were still there), and Columbus on the same trip. A very scenic (if wet—this would have been late April) – tour.

    Great, looking forward to the Story story. As I’ve mentioned before my experience with Indiana is limited to driving I-70 nonstop across the state, usually at night, so I find these posts quite enlightening..

    • I-70? Dreadful! One of the most boring highways in the nation. Someday when you have time you ought to at least dive off 70 onto US 40 and drive it across the state. It’s a four-lane expressway in most places. You’ll have to drive through Indianapolis which will be the thing that slows you down the most.
