Meet a Schrader Representative at the buildings on Tract 3 on SR 10.


West of Roselawn, IN on SR 10 to SR 55. The property has frontage a short distance to the north on SR 55 and also has frontage on SR 10 a short distance to the west.


Lincoln Township Volunteer Fire Department, 3130 E. 1177 N. Thayer, IN 46381. From the junction of SR 10 and SR 55, west of Roselawn, IN, go north on SR 55 approximately 1.8 miles to 1185 N (1st St north of railroad tracks). Turn east (right) on 1185 N, then take another immediate right (south) onto East Avenue and follow the curve to the left (turns into 1177 N) traveling approximately 1/8 mile to auction site on the north side of street. GPS does not work with this address so please use the directions provided.


SR 55 is open from SR 10 north to the auction site in Thayer, even though barricades are up on SR 55 at SR 10. Follow directions to the auction site above or in the brochure and you will be fine. SR 55 is closed north of Thayer due to high water at the Kankakee River, therefore you will not be able to travel from the north on SR 55.

US 41 northbound, north of SR 10, is closed due to high water at the Kankakee River. However US 41 southbound is open at that location.

I-65 and US 231 are open both directions over the Kankakee River.
