Dixie Hwy. Turns 100


This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Dixie Highway.

The Auglaize County Historical Society held an event at Otterbein Cridersville to give people an idea of how the Dixie Highway came to be.

The route runs along 25-A in Auglaize County, just west of Interstate 75.

The Dixie Highway really was a collection of already existing roads, with improvements made in some areas that stretched from Michigan to Florida.
