The little 1850s railroad town of New Augusta is nestled among suburban streets of Pike Township in northwest Indianapolis. If you don’t know it’s there, you might drive right by it with no idea. A rail line went in through here in about 1852, and a town formed around the stop that was built here. This station dates to about 1895.
New Augusta’s rail days are long since past, but the station remains — and is now for sale, along with a three-bedroom house next door. My wife and I are sorely, sorely, sorely tempted — we’d love to live in this charming enclave. Alas, we’re at least a year away from being ready to move. But if this property interests you, read more about it here.
