US 36 in Western Indiana

The Jim Grey Page Roads


US 36 was moved at some time one block north to bypass downtown Bainbridge, a tiny town not far west of the previous segment's end.

This photo shows where Main St., which is old US 36 westbound, branches off from the current US 36.

The terrain rolls a little bit in this part of Indiana, and US 36 hugs it pretty good. This eastbound photo shows it from the beginning of the Bainbridge segment.

I passed a number of older houses set close to the road, and then I came to downtown Bainbridge, all two blocks of it. Its old buildings are left from when this town was probably quite vital. I suspect that the big building at right, at the corner of Main and Washington Streets, was once a hotel. An old-style bank, with its door facing the corner, was behind me.

As quickly as I entered Bainbridge, I left it. Here's how Main St. flows into US 36 westbound.

Here's the eastbound approach to Bainbridge.
