When State Road 67 was laid out in 1926, it entered Sandborn from the north on what is now State Road 59. At the center of town it turned right and followed College Street (aka CR 1150 E) out of town on its southbound journey.
There’s not much to downtown Sandborn, just a few old buildings.
The road takes a circuitous route to Edwardsport, mostly along country roads but for a short stretch following what is now State Road 58. As you can see, the current route of SR 67 is much more direct.
Despite the frequent turns, this was a pleasant stretch to drive with plenty of typical Indiana scenery.
It felt like I was entering Edwardsport through the back door. This scene is immediately north of Edwardsport. I can’t figure out what water is likely to flood this area as I saw only a tiny creek running through. Perhaps it floods like mad when it rains.
Edwardsport is not much more than a collection of houses — a fairly sizeable one, as small Indiana towns go. But I found no business district.
SR 67 originally exited Edwardsport along Jackson Street, an east-west street on the south end of town. It makes a 90-degree turn to head directly south.
Next: A long series of 90-degree turns until the road reaches the town of Bicknell, including an abandoned bridge.
