Indiana Street

When Elias Jackson “Lucky” Baldwin (1828-1909) established Arcadia in 1887, he named several downtown streets in honor of his childhood home in Indiana. St Joseph Street is for St. Joseph County, where his parents’ farm was located. (They lived in a tiny community called Terre Coupee, within the county’s Olive Township.) La Porte Street is for La Porte, IN, a small city 15 miles west of the farm, in a county of the same name. Naturally, Arcadia has an Indiana Street as well.
