About Ind 2:

This road has had an interesting history dating from before the renumbering of 1926.

In the early twenties, it actually ran over the Lincoln Highway all the way across, but by 1925 it had been moved to run over what would become US 30. With the commissioning of the US numbering system, it was again renumbered over the Old Lincoln Highway between Fort Wayne and Valparaiso, then continued southwest (over what I'm guessing is the old Sauk Trail, more or less) to Illinois. With the commissioning of US 33, it was shortened to the route between South Bend and Illinois.
