The Historic National Road Yard Sale extends for 824 miles from St.
Louis to Baltimore along the Historic National Road also known as US 40.
This iconic event will be held from May 31 – June 4, 2023 from Dawn Till Dusk. NOTE: for future yard sale aficionados the yard sale is always held the FIRST Wednesday after Memorial Day.
It doesn’t seem possible that a score has elapsed since the inception of the Historic National Road Yard Sale!! Yes, that’s right!! INDIVIDUALS HAVE BEEN TRAIPSING DOWN THIS VENERABLE HIGHWAY FOR 20 YEARS IN SEARCH OF THAT ONE ELUSIVE ITEM!! There will be some special events to commemorate this “collectible” moment so stay posted for future updates!!
Not a yard sale fan? Then you might enjoy simply meandering along America’s first interstate, sampling local food truck morsels, (think an oversized, well-dressed, deep fried, and breaded tenderloin), visiting a local restaurant (think a slice of sugar cream pie – which is also Indiana’s state pie), kibitzing with local history buffs, perusing small town antique shops, purchasing a Christmas gift at a specialty store, or spending a night or two in a bed and breakfast inclusive of classic architecture, or stopping to visit with Mr. Boos, aka the CEO/Canine Executive Officer of the Historic National Road Yard Sale!!
Speaking of Mr. Boos, he resides with his human, Patricia McDaniel, in the hamlet of Dublin, Indiana. This is the official headquarters of the Historic National Road Yard Sale which originated nineteen years ago way back in
- (Mr. Boos is a most humble canine. He’d never say that he was the featured guest on Sherman Burdette “Where’s Sherman”–Fox 59/Indianapolis in 2017.)
There have never been any constraints attached to the Historic National Road Yard Sale. There has never been a committee or official organization since the yard sale’s inception. It’s definitely no fun allocating two to three hours the third Wednesday of each month recounting two or three hours of last month’s meeting!! Each individual or organization on US 40 should be lauded for their contribution to making the Historic National Road Yard Sale a resounding success!!
