Road Trip 1926: US 12

Another Saturday, another Road Trip excursion across Indiana. But this time, it is the lowest numbered US route in the state, at the time. (US 6 would be around a decade before extended across the state.) It is also the shortest of these routes.

When US 12 was created, it was described as follows: “U. S. Route 12 – Now State Road 43, or Dunes Highway, from Chicago through Whiting, East Chicago, Gary, and Michigan City to the Indiana-Michigan state line between Michigan City and New Buffalo.”

Now, through the use of Google Maps and Microsoft Paint, I present US 12 as of 1 October 1926.
