HistoryEdit

State Route 274 was designated in 1930. It was originally routed between State Route 66 in New Bremen and what was originally designated State Route 69 (now State Route 235) near Russells Point.[3][4] In 1937, the highway was extended on both ends, on the west to its current western terminus at U.S. Route 127 west of Chickasaw, and on the east to its current eastern endpoint at State Route 273 northeast of Rushsylvania.[5][6]
