What was life like over 100 years ago in a little corner of Northeast Indiana in the quaint town of Rome City? “R is for Rome City” tells the history of this town and the remarkable people who once lived there. Alphabet organized, author Beth Friskney lays out the past and present day of Rome City and Sylvan Lake. Read about how Rome City was once a resort town where people arrived by train for Chautauqua Days and stayed at the beautiful Kneipp Springs near Sylvan Lake. From the famous author Gene Stratton-Porter and Baseball Commissioner Ford Frick to the infamous Blacklegs and Regulators, Friskney covers it all.
