More Information

From the website:

The Industrial Heritage Trail is a local rail-with-trail that links together historic industrial sites in Kokomo's history and is currently 5.88 miles in length.  Along the trail, leaders of industry are and were once located.  The trail runs south just past Lincoln Road and north through Downtown Kokomo and connects to the Nickel Plate Trail.  It intersects the Wildcat Creek Walk of Excellence just south of Superior Street.
 

The Kokomo Rubber Company, located near the intersection of Main and Markland produced the first pneumatic rubber tire in the United States.  Traveling south, the Haynes Automobile Company introduced America to the automobile.  Currently, Chrysler and Kokomo Opalescent Glass are located near the trail.  The trail has historic information markers near areas of significance.  In addition to learning more about the City of Firsts, there are also resting spaces along the trail.  One is near a piece of public art close to Kokomo Opalescent Glass.
