Low water levels have exposed the long-lost community of Monument City - and Hoosiers now will have a chance to visit.
Monument City was a small town in Huntington County of about 50 to 100 residents. It was abandoned in 1965 to make way for the Salamonie Reservoir.
The Department of Natural Resources will be leading tours of the site on Sunday and Aug. 5 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The tour will start with an opportunity to learn about the site at the Salamonie Interpretive Center.
"There are so many stories unrecorded of the former towns and fond memories of days past that we would like to record at a future date," said Marvin McNew, director of the Upper Wabash Interpretive Services. "We hope those folks will call us or visit on these days, so we can make arrangements to learn from them and share these lasting images with future generations."
