Nov. 16, 2011 - PRLog -- New from Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Indiana’s Historic National Road: The East Side, Richmond to Indianapolis by Alan E. Hunter and Joseph M. Jarzen for the Indiana National Road Association. This pictorial history boasts more than 200 vintage images and provides readers with a unique opportunity to reconnect with the history that helped shape their community.

The National Road is the nation’s first federally funded interstate highway commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson in 1806. Today, it is among a select number of designated All-American Roads within the National Scenic Byways program. The story of the road is about the people who traveled, settled and lived along it over the past 200 years.

The Indiana National Road Association hopes the photographs and stories within this book will give readers an appreciation for the 200-year past of the Historic National Road. Often referred to as “The Road that Built the Nation,” this federally designated All-American Road retains much of the integrity from its early days as a pioneer corridor.

Highlights of Indiana’s Historic National Road: The East Side, Richmond to Indianapolis:
•   Richmond to Centerville
•   Cambridge City to Dunreith
•   Huddleston Farmhouse
•   Knightstown to Greenfield
•   Philadelphia to Cumberland
•   The Big City

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
