Marion, Indiana

Hoosier sandwiches, Gene Stratton-Porter, Frank Lloyd Wright and the Amish.

Stopped to see family in Marion and were treated like royalty, took us all over the place, I think Isabella and Powell would have stayed with Aunt Linda and Uncle Charlie. Ate my first Hoosier Sandwich in Berne, Indiana and am still regretting not photographing the monster. A pork tenderloin beaten until it is about 1/2 an inch thick and 8 inches in diameter, breaded, fried and placed on an abusrredly small 4 inch dia. bun with pickles, ketchup and mustard. Very tasty but no one here knows what a Hossier is either.
After departing Berne you of course drive through Geneva which houses the Limberlost, Gene Stratton Porter's home.

Frank Lloyd Wright house in Marion.
