Day Trip: The Old National Road

Treasure Hunting in Rural America

Last Sunday, Mr. Wonderful and I
treated ourselves to one of our favorite
things to do on a Sunday afternoon.  We
went hunting for antiques along the Old
National Road.  The Old National Road was
the first major improved highway in the United
States.  For the settlers heading West in their
covered wagons, it was considered the "Gateway
to the West."  In our neck of the woods, it is still
for the most part a two lane road passing through
farm fields and the little villages of Smalltown
America.  So here is a collection of photos of the
buildings in the towns and samplings from the
antique stores.  I hope you enjoy it as much
as we do.
