In 1847, Salem businessmen, anxious to develop a way of shipping goods between Salem and the Ohio River, joined with New Albany businessmen in organizing the New Albany and Salem Rail Road. This road was one of the pioneer lines of the midwest. In 1859 the line was reorganized as the Louisville, New Albany and Chicago Railroad. The line developed into a distinctive x-shaped pattern across Indiana. In 1897 it reorganized again as the Chicago, Indianapolis and Louisville Railway Company. The line changed its name to Monon in 1956. In 1902 the Louisville and Nashville acquired a controlling portion of the line's stock and finally absorbed the line in 1971.
