(UNDATED) - If you have traveled on U.S. 50 you may have noticed newly installed Indiana's Historic Pathways signs.

The signs encourage motorists to visit the sites located near what was once the historic Buffalo Trace.

Indiana's Historic Pathways, which passes through 16 Hoosier counties, is a National Scenic Byway made up of U.S. 50 from Vincennes to Lawrenceburg and its overlap, U.S. 150, which separates itself from U.S. 50 at Shoals before extending to Clarksville near the Kentucky stateline. The Pathways were designated part of the National Scenic Byway just over six years ago.

The Indiana Department of Transportation has been busy installing more than 200 signs, which feature a bison, along the U.S. 50 and U.S. 150 corridor.

Information provided by Historic Southern Indiana states that after the Indiana Territory was created in 1800, a road was constructed just to the north of the Buffalo Trace that was used by stagecoaches and others traveling. That route eventually became what is now known as U.S. 150.

Located along the route are eight National Register Historic Districts, three National Historic Landmarks, 19th Century mansions and stagecoach inns, multiple historic sites and museums and many historic businesses and cemeteries.
