Loving the season. Last weekend was gorgeous. I always enjoy day trips in the Fall because I know the good weather won’t last. We hit the road to wander Indiana. We revisited a little town called Story. We were there on another day trip to nearby Brown County/Nashville, Indiana, another quaint place to see.
My parents came along on our little outing. As we were driving, we passed a sight for our sore eyes, a church where my parents’ southern gospel music group visited many times over the course of the band’s life…the band my husband and I were in too for a couple of years…but that’s another story for another time.
Look at the corner of the sign, it says Enjoy Coca Cola!
Sadly this old church is no longer in use.
After quite a few miles and just as many minutes, if not more, we arrived at our destination. “The town of Story was founded in 1851. It soon became the largest town in the area in its heyday (1880-1929). Story didn’t survive The Great Depression and the folks there left the town for better opportunities”.
“In 1982, Benjamin and Cynthia Schultz began the process of transforming the town into the ‘Story Inn’. Today the town, now synonymous with the business which bears its name, is prospering once again”. (Credit: from Story Inn brochure).
We viewed a few of the rooms in the Inn. They held a lot of charm.
The short drive entering the small town is so inviting. Makes me wish I lived here back in the day.
I would still like to try the food in the restaurant, but they are closed between 2-5, which just so happened to be the times we were there on both visits. They do have an outdoor stand with burgers and hot dogs that was open for business, and a bar and grill area in the basement of the inn. We are holding out for the restaurant.
Maybe next time!
