The Indiana portion, built between 1829 and 1834, linked the eastern seashore with the western interior. Today, the Indiana National Road Association helps to preserve, protect and promote the Historic National Road. The road was recently designated an All- American Road. Driving the route evokes a sense of traveling though the passageways of history from the pike towns to the rural pastures, showcasing genuine Midwest scenic beauty.
