Driving somewhere west of Cincinnati and east of Indianapolis, in the middle of nowhere, we glimpsed far off in the distance a massive church steeple.
Coming closer, we realized it wasn’t just one spire but several.
Oldenburg, Indiana, was founded in 1837 by German settlers who immediately began building churches. The town now boasts a population of 600 people and, from the looks of it, about the same number of churches.

We don’t know much about this part of the country but two things are apparent:

We’ll see you somewhere down the road.
