Griffith and Calumet Township, Indiana

In addition to being Indiana's 200th birthday, 2016 is also the 125th anniversary of the founding of the town of Griffith! Like many towns and cities in the region, Griffith owes its origins to an active railroad back in its first days. You can learn all about the railroad and other fascinating facts about Griffith at the Griffith Historical Society - which includes not only a historical display room at the Franklin Center, but historic train cars at the Grand Trunk Combination Depot on Broad Street.
