little Indiana Weekly Recap 10/8/2012 — 10/13/2012

It’s easy to miss a little Indiana article here and there. I do update twice a day, every day! But have no fear, the weekly recap is here!

Are you ready for fun and adventure small Indiana town style? This week was packed with things to do! First, did you catch me visiting Greensburg, Indiana on PBS as part of The Weekly Special? You can watch that in full below. We also panned for gemstones, watched an Indiana weaver at work, found the headstone of a former slave who helped many other slaves make their way to freedom at the Levi Coffin House, as well as checked out an Indiana bridge that found new purpose.

For those of you who enjoy baking? Add the Chocolate Chip Scones Recipe and the Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars to your list–and then please oh please share with me.
