The Saturday Evening Post was born in Indiana

Indiana is one of those places that gets terribly misunderstood. Think about it seriously: the vast majority of people in the United States ignore it almost entirely, with the general exception of major cultural events such as the Indy 500. But Indiana is home to numerous iconic places, people, and events—so much more than just NASCAR. For example, did you know that Michael Jackson himself was born here (in Gary of all places)? It’s true. Indiana is also home to another iconic cultural beacon created by Benjamin Franklin (of all people): the Saturday evening post has been around for more than two centuries, and best of all, it’s our own.

Today the Saturday evening post has about 200,000 subscribers and is still going strong. If you want to check it yourself, visit the official Saturday evening post Website – You will be amazed, I promise.
