The Indiana National Road Association works to preserve, protect, and promote the Historic National Road. This byway is designated an All-American Road through the National Scenic Byways program and traverses six states from Baltimore, Maryland, to East St. Louis, Illinois. The road began as a primary route west for pioneers, and today the byway allows travelers to explore the American past—it is truly “the road that built the nation.” This volume continues the story that began on the eastern leg of Indiana’s Historic National Road, inviting readers to complete their photographic journey westward from Indianapolis to Terre Haute. These images document the people and stories that are part of the National Road’s heritage, and it is hoped this book will encourage advocacy for the protection of important heritage resources.
