The beginning of the Michigan Road

The beginning of the Michigan Road
Canon PowerShot S95
2018

When I surveyed the Michigan Road end to end in 2008, I failed to photograph this marker at the road’s beginning. The Daughters of the American Revolution placed it in 1916, on the occasion of Indiana’s centennial.

Margaret and I have made our first trip on our re-survey of the road. We did not fail to photograph the marker this time!

Sadly, no Michigan Road Historic Byway wayfinding signs were present. One should stand near this rock with a “Begin” sign under it, and another should stand across the street with an “End” sign under it. They have gone missing.

    Jim, I was in your part of the country last week. My daughter lives in Kentucky, and my sister in law lives near Noblesville. We visited both, and as we drove to Noblesville we went through a small town called Greenfield, east of Indianapolis. If you’ve never been, check it out. I know how much you like old buildings, and the courthouse there is amazing.
