Streets of Old Shelby

 

 

Take a leisurely stroll through time and history as you walk along The Streets of Old Shelby, a 15-year project completed in 1996.

Visitor’s enter the life-size village via a recreation of an interurban train car, similar to to the Indianapolis and Cincinnati Traction Company interurban service, which ran between Indianapolis and Greensburg.

After getting off car, visitors will be able to explore the Hotel, Saloon, Hardware Store, Blacksmith, Printing Press, Livery Stable, School, Sheriff’s Office, Emporium, and other shops that were found in villages during the 1900.

Each shop and business has a unique display of artifacts donated to Grover Museum; and community members are invited to visit the Emporium the third Saturday of each month for FREE Root Beer Floats.

This permanent exhibit is the culmination of a 15-year project which was completed in 1996.
