This is a portion of page 608 from the 1882-83 R. L. Polk gazetteer for Indiana showing Nora, Indiana. The community was located “10½ miles north of Indianapolis.” Railways mentioned are the “I., P. & Cl. Div. W., St. L. & P. R’y” at Castleton and the “C. & I. Div. L., N. A. & C. R’y.” The latter was under construction and “will pass through this place.” A stage made the trip “tri-weekly to Indianapolis.” Peter Lawson owned the general store and was postmaster. In addition, there were three blacksmiths, two sawmills, a grocer, a shoemaker and an engineer.
