St. Elmo kiosk: A historic storyboard
Written by Administrator Monday, 24 August 2015 12:11
BY PANZI BLACKWELL
The Historic National Road Association of Illinois has placed 20 attractive, commemorative kiosks in 19 communities along the National Road, also known as U.S. Route 40—all containing different stories interesting historical information about the villages and towns, and the road... and Fayette County has three of them: St. Elmo, Brownstown, and Vandalia.
The kiosks are attractive additions to the roadside, and each one is different as it is a tribute to, and tells a story about, the town or village in which it is located.
All are placed along next to the road, and are easily accessible, whether on foot or by a vehicle.
All of these kiosks, also known as storyboards, have a blue, informational patch on the right end, as well as the symbol of the Historic National Road, which ties them all together as part of the National Road.
