Indianapolis, Indiana, September 20-23, 2012
We invite you to travel along the Historic National Road to Indianapolis, Indiana for our next conference, September 20-23, 2012. Long known as the Crossroads State, Indiana has notable historic roads and scenic byway corridors including the Historic National Road, the Ohio River Scenic Byway, Indiana Historic Pathways, the Lincoln Highway, the Whitewater Canal, the Dixie Highway and the Michigan Road. Founded in 1821, Indianapolis was designed by Alexander Ralston, an apprentice of Pierre Charles L'Enfant. Nicknamed the Circle City, Indianapolis is centered on historic Monument Circle. In the 1900s, as a part of the City Beautiful movement, the noted landscape architect George Kessler created a plan for parklands and boulevards throughout the City. Today, after forty years of progressive planning, we invite you to experience the historic sites, canal, public spaces and museums of downtown Indianapolis-one of the most dynamic and walkable cities in the United States. Mark your calendar now for Indianapolis and Preserving the Historic Road 2012!
This year the french historian Mathieu Flonneau will be to this conference and speak on the history of the French Paris Autodrome (Montlhéry).
