Recreating a pioneer voyage from 200 years ago, a Bicentennial Wagon Train is making its way from Indiana’s first state capital to the newest one and hopes to be in Indianapolis for this Saturdays Bicentenial Celebration.
The wagon train stopped in Salem Sunday at the Washington County Fairgrounds in the afternoon.
The wagon train, headed up by Ronald Rice of Bloomington, Indiana, will be traveling from Corydon to Indianapolis to celebrate the State of Indiana Bicentennial.
Their first night will be spent camping out in Palmyra and Salem will be their second overnight stay.
They are expecting approximately 12 wagons to participate in this journey and they camped out in Salem before moving on to Jackson County on Monday.
