ANDREWS, Ind. (AP) — The state Department of Natural Resources is offering
two supervised tours to a town that has reappeared in a northeastern Indiana
reservoir after being submerged for nearly half a century.
Tours of Monument City in Salamonie Reservoir are being offered the next two
Sundays at 5:30 p.m. The city was submerged when the reservoir was created
in 1967, but the drought has revealed its remnants. The DNR had previously
closed access to the area to protect artifacts until state and federal
archaeologists could inspect the area.
Visitors wanting to learn more about the site can begin at the Salamonie
Interpretive Center in Andrews, 40 miles southwest of Fort Wayne, for an
orientation program, then follow leaders to the Monument City site.
