The stately drive to the historic mansion Veraestau is lined with giant oak trees. The property is located about a half mile from Indiana State Road 56. Turn on Market Street, which forms an intersection with Fifth Street and State Road 56. The street climbs the slope, and passes the mansion over four hundred feet above the River.
