Lake Maxinkuckee Its Intrigue History & Genealogy Culver, Marshall, Indiana

King's Routes to and Culver and Maxinkuckee Lake, Ind. 1915 

I acquired the "King's Official Route Guide - Section Five Automobile Routes of Indiana and Southern Indiana" published in 1915.

In it are routes to and from Culver , Maxinkuckee Lake.

The terminology is interesting and since maybe some of the routes, landmarks etc. are no longer of existence; I thought it would be of some historical interest to some - maybe even the bikers out there. would it not be interesting to see if you could travell part of the routes discribed?

We do know that the road from the town of Culver through the Academy has changed and became private. We also know that State Road 10 was created and built in 1929; to take the place of the road through the Academy as it existed in 1915. Here is a cropped out section of the Marshall county plat map that shows the "Old road".
