As the nation knows, Indiana is the "Crossroads of America." It's no surprise that many major highways entwine the areas of Henry County. The Old National Road also known as U.S. 40 is the oldest of these cutting across the entire southern part of the county. Interstate 70 was built in the late 1960's — taking a large amount of travelers from U.S. 40 — and is a major thoroughfare today. Those seeking a more northern route can use US Highway 36 or State Road 38 depending on your destination. State Road 3 is a major 4-lane highway which runs north and south, linking visitors to Muncie and I-74; Henry County is within a short drive from major urban areas such as Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Ohio, and northern Kentucky.
