The Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay made its way to the hills of Brown County this morning.

The torch was lit in downtown Nashville before making its way through the downtown parade route and heading out on the Salt Creek Trail.

From the trail, torchbearers followed Hawthorne Drive and made their way to the Brown County State Park.

The day will conclude with a reception at T.C. Steele State Historic Site and the torch being passed off to Monroe County.

The Bicentennial Torch Relay is a 2,300-mile journey across Indiana that began in Corydon, Indiana’s first capital, on Sept. 9.

The purpose of the torch relay is not only to celebrate Indiana’s 200th anniversary as a state but also to honor dedicated community members by choosing them as torchbearers as well as promote unity across the state.

The torch will travel six days each week for six weeks, concluding at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Oct. 15.

The torch relay ended at T.C. Steele State Historic Site, and traveled on foot, by bike, classic car and even rode on top of a fire truck. The torch will travel through Monroe County next.
