Artist's Description

Nikon S7000 Nov.,9, 2017

Oldenburg is a very small town in south west Indiana, with a population of only 675 people.
Oldenburg was founded in 1837 by a group of German settlers. The town was named after Oldenburg, in Germany. Incorporated in 1881. Oldenburg is called the “Village of Spires” because of its churches and religious educational institutions. In 1851, Mother Theresa Hackelmeier (1827-1860) founded the Sisters of St. Francis of Oldenburg who would open numerous schools in the Midwest.
Though it is a little out of the way, I always stop in this lovely small town after some horseback riding at Salt Creek Ranch in Laurel, In. for some delicious fried chicken at Wagner’s Restaurant before heading back home to
Newport, Ky.
