  • The Big Four Railroad In Indiana (1,659)
    The Big Four Railroad In Indiana - By Ared Maurice Murphy
    The railroad was the making of Fortville, in Hancock county, and in later years McCordsville, another thriving town in the same county, and built along the line.

    One town, however, on the railroad remains a "town of dreams unrealized." This is Oaklandon, 14 miles northeast of Indianapolis, named in memory of the great forest oaks which were felled there to make way for the railroad. With the advent of the road, the place having already been on the Pendleton pike, John Emery in 1849

    laid out streets and cross streets for a pretentious town that would accommodate hundreds of homes, stores, churches, schools, factories, mills, and even exporters and importers.

    However, it became a prosperous country town and no more; and today it is a pleasant, fairly active village of about three hundred and fifty.*
