Headlines from the past

In 1923, two of the modes of transportation in Bureau County were the automobile and the Interurban. The Interurban ran from North Main in Princeton to Bureau Junction and beyond, with the tracks running south on Main as far as Bryant Nursery. From there the tracks ran southeast past the Bureau Valley Country Club and crossed the road that connects what we now know as Route 26 and Lake Arispie. The Interurban had a stop called Shaeffer’s Crossing on this connecting road. The hill was known as Weise Hill. The headlines in the Aug. 16, 1923, edition of the BCR read, “Interurban Hits Auto; Four Dead.”
