Lincoln Highway Garage – Churubusco, IN

Turtle Town – The Famous Turtle Hunt
In 1949, the town of Churubusco gained a national reputation when a turtle was sighted in one of the nearby lakes.  The turtle was supposedly sighted by a number of people and was said to have a shell the size of a table top. The land owner was determined to trap the huge turtle.  The hunt made the news across the Midwest. The lake water was lowered, but “Oscar” was never found.
