Antique Treasures in Indiana
Plan a two-day getaway
"We each have to find at least one treasure to take home."
That's the advice Carol Schalla gives two other members of Midwest Living's travel staff, Joan Luckett and Barbara Morrow, as they set out to explore Antique Alley.
Their getaway focuses on Centerville and Richmond, which offer the lion's share of antiques dealers. But shops also are sprinkled throughout Knightstown, Lewisville, Cambridge City and other hamlets along US-40, aka the National Road, one of the oldest highways in the nation (dating to the early 1800s). Allow two full days for a visit, spending the night either in Centerville or Richmond.
