See the Incredible Seven Pillars – Indiana’s Best Kept Secret [VIDEO]
The outdoors is calling our names. Even though we are outdoors for much of the year, when the weather gets warmer, it's like a breath of fresh air. we start looking for places to go so that we can enjoy the beautiful weather.
For my family, we look for new and different places to explore. We really don't like going to the same place twice. When there is so much to see and discover, why limit yourself?
I came across a nature preserve with amazing limestone pillars in Indiana that I didn't even know existed. I even grew up in Indiana and have never heard of it.
The Seven Pillars
I'm mesmerized by these pillars. Standing tall along the banks of the Mississinewa River, the pillars look so majestic. The Seven Pillars Facebook page had this to say about these natural wonders.
This preserve on the south side of the Mississinewa River is named after the landmark 25-foot limestone pillars, also owned by ACRES, which are located on the north side of the river. On top of the bluff grow red cedar, Juneberry, and shadbush. In the preserve are beech, maple, and other trees, as well as an open meadow. The Miami Nation continues to gather at the pillars.
