Satanic Temple Indiana Adopts Stretch of Boone Co. Highway

The temple completed its first cleanup in July, but many people first noticed their efforts when they put a photo of their "Adopt-a-Highway" sign on social media.

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. -- If you drive along a stretch of US 421 in Boone County, you might just pass an "Adopt a Highway" sign sponsored by a Satanic temple.

The Satanic Temple Indiana "adopted" a two-mile stretch of road south of US 32 and east of Lebanon earlier this year.

Temple members completed their first cleanup in July, but many people first noticed their efforts on Monday, when the temple shared a photo of its new "Adopt-A-Highway" sign on social media.

The temple said it applied for the "Adopt-a-Highway" program as part of its "Inverted Crossroads" campaign, a cleanup initiative that gives members the chance to give back to the Hoosier state.

"The Inverted Crossroads Campaign is an idea we’ve had since before we became an official chapter," said TST Indiana co-chapterhead Mara Gorgo. "It’s great to see this goal becoming a reality and enabling our members to serve the state."

As part of the part of the highway program, the temple is required to pick trash along their adopted stretch of road four times throughout the year.
