Organizational Note:

The Indianapolis, Peru & Chicago Railway was originally formed as the Peru & Indianapolis in 1846 to connect Indianapolis with the Wabash and Erie Canal. The railroad was completed in 1854. In 1864, the company was reorganized as the Indianapolis, Peru & Chicago. The railroad took over the 88 miles of track between Peru and Michigan City from the Chicago, Cincinnati & Louisville railroad. The line was operated for the next 90 years by a variety of owners. In 1881, the Indianapolis, Peru & Chicago Railway was leased by the Wabash, St. Louis & Pacific. It was sold in 1887 to the Lake Erie & Western railroad.
