Group Description

Indiana is a vibrant state, with much to offer the visitor or resident, and a bright future in the new century. But as time marches forward, echoes of the past are still spread across the landscape.

Indiana’s history has always been closely linked to agriculture - a tradition that continues today. However, at one time Indiana was the center of population for the United States - and great industrial institutions grew up from the farmland. First dirt, then gravel, then mighty paved highways crossed the map. The state was a hub for many railroads, and grand stations and exclusive resorts were built along the tracks.

As these industrial giants waned in the global economy, sleepy state highways were passed by great interstates, the railroads faded, and we are left with the discarded shells of what Indiana is no longer.

The pages at http://www.lostindiana.net and this group chronicle our continuing desire to snapshot these markers of our history before they fade forever into dust.
