Greenfield, Knightstown, Cambridge City, Centerville, Richmond, Fountain City, and Hagerstown Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Although Indianapolis likes to lay claim to James Whitcomb Riley, the bard actually spent much time in this little town, which he called “the best town outside of heaven.” In early October, the town celebrates his birthday with a festival, which has grown to be one of the largest in the state. Appropriately, Knightstown is named for one of the engineers of the National Road, Jonathan Knight. For its charming architecture (the town is rife with brick Italianate buildings), the entire town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Hoosier Gym was used in the consummate Indiana basketball movie, Hoosiers. Cambridge City was home to the six Overbeck sisters, who created art pottery, much sought after in the first half of the twentieth century. Samples of the prized pottery can be seen at the public library. As you drive along State Road 38, you’ll pass large comfortable homes and an attractive park with a Japanese-style bridge. These days the town’s number-one draw is Wellivers; devotees have been known to fly into the county airport just to eat at the restaurant."
