Oolitic, Indiana (Stop #2)

Some, including me, may not have any interest in just another small Indiana town. However, our quick stop in Oolitic proved interesting!

We were brought here to find the virtual geocache,
also known as the statue of the Joe Polooka.
He was an American comic-strip character
popular in the 1930s and 40s - plus he donned a cape!

Some of the largest limestone quarries in the world are found here.
Some famous buildings are built with Oolitic limestone,
including the Empire State Building!

And a discovery of Abe!

And excitement over an old carriage in downtown!
Now you know all about the .78 square mile town of Oolitic!
