Last fall, New Carlisle’s gorgeous bike trail was deluged with graffiti, which Main & Lake had decoded by a professional symbologist from the University of Cincinnati. Either the culprits are back at it, or we have a new group responsible for desecrating New Carlisle’s streets and landmarks.
With the New Carlisle graffiti bandits striking again, we once again reached out to a professor of symbology to provide some information as to the meaning of these paintings.

Do you ever get tired of only hearing about the negative things that happen in New Carlisle? Do you get tired of the lamestream media telling you only the stories that fit their agenda? WE DO TOO! Why, if you were only to listen to the news and what you see on social media, you might think New Carlisle is nothing but a no-good cesspool filled with lost pets, crime, school scandals, negative restaurant reviews, lost pets, drug use, pizza restaurants, lost pets, tax services, and rude people.
With that in mind, we decided to show you some pictures that demonstrate the great things that happen and exist in New Carlisle every day. If you’re like us, these pictures will make you happy and proud to live in a small, welcoming, friendly town like New Carlisle.
Here are 10 photos that will restore your faith in New Carlisle.
A report of spray painted graffiti on the New Carlisle bike trail was posted on the popular Facebook group “You Know You’re From New Carlisle If…” this week. Pictures were posted showing symbols and words emblazoned on benches and a concrete rest area.
Main and Lake has reached out to a professor of symbology to try to attach meanings to the defacement and to hopefully provide clues that may lead to the apprehension of the vandal.
