This stamp is my effort of trying to get at least one stamp in every county of Indiana (not that I have to do all of them, but I don't want anyone feeling left out). I tried and tried to find something cool in Shelby Co, web searches, asking locals, driving around, alas I did the best I could. This church was cool as were some of the houses a little further on down 44. This handcarved stamp is a driveby, my shortest yet.
From Indy take I-74 east to S.R. 44 south into Shelbyville(less than 5 minutes). This will become Broadway. You'll go through several intersections. At a fourway stop you will turn right on Tompkins and then left on a oneway street (Jackson I think). This goes behind the First Presbyterian Church which has a very small memorial garden/resting area on its northwest side. 8-10 ft evergreens line the north side. There are a couple of benches and a walkway of memorial bricks. Next to the bench facing north is a short row of manicured evergreen bushes. About a foot from the west side, in the bushes should be a small camo taped letterbox with the stamp you seek. Congratulations to Trail Stompers, first finders!Please contact me and let me know its condition. And no offense to anyone from the area, if you know of other cool things, please...put a stamp and we will come!
