This Day in Dayton, 4 June
On June 4, 1996, the Olympic Torch Relay crossed Tippecanoe County. The Olympic flame was carried right down SR 38 in Dayton on its journey from Gary to Indianapolis at 3:21 pm. It was carried by a torchbearer on a bicycle. Troy Larson of McCutcheon High School participated in the run as an escort. (Journal and Courier, 2 June 1996).
