My latest micro-RV (uRV) trip was to Madison Indiana which is on the Ohio River east of Louisville. As usual I took county and state roads during my 400 mile trek. One of the towns that intrigued me was Flat Rock Indiana. I’m sure it was once a thriving rural town in the area. There is a gravel pit near the town as the only traffic through the town while I was there were loaded dump trucks.

I think there were still a few houses occupied in the town and there still seemed to be an active fire station in the same area as these pictures. I am amazed that I was able to find something about Flat Rock on Wiki. It was platted in 1855 took its name from the Flat Rock River in the area. It once had its own high school at the turn of the 20th century.
I also found an old photo of the town dated 1913. I think I recognize some of the building still standing from that photo.
Traveling the back road in search of America sure is fascinating stuff….
