Indiana: The "Hoosier State" entered the Union on Dec. 11, 1816 to become the 19th State.
True to its motto, "Cross Roads of America" Indiana has more miles of Interstate Highway per square mile than any other state. Today more major highways intersect in Indiana than any other state.
The first long-distance auto race in the U.S. was held May 30, 1922, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The winner averaged 75 mph and won a 1st place prize of $14,000. Today the average speed is over 167 mph and the prize is more than $1.2 million. Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the site of the greatest spectacle in sports, the Indianapolis 500.
Peru Indiana was once known as the "Circus Capital of America".
All of those people in Indiana need countertops, and there are plenty of places to supply them! You can find a list of countertop businesses in Indiana here.
This is a sneak peek at our efforts to compile the most complete list of countertop fabricators in the United States from A to Z. We will be working on Iowa next and hope to give you a look at that list as soon as its available. And you will find it here first.
There are still some inconsistencies to the list, but we are working to correct them and I just couldn't wait to share it.
In coming weeks (and likely months), we will be compiling lists for all 50 states, and once we get them done, we will seek input from the industry to make sure everything is in order before we release the information to the public.
We think this is going to be very popular with the countertop community and very useful for those seeking new countertops.
Let us know what you think!
