Blair fundraiser walk

Original stretch of brick road near Ligonier

Jeff Blair, a member of the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association board of directors, is walking across Indiana as a fundraiser for both the INLHA and the Alzheimer’s Association beginning April 14th. You can find out more about the walk, as well as make a pledge, by visiting his Web site, www.blairwalk.com. For those who are not familiar with the Lincoln Highway, it was the nation’s first coast to coast road and existed in the days before highways were numbered. The original route came through Elkhart County including Benton, Goshen, Dunlap and Elkhart. In the 1920s, it was rerouted to the south and later became what is now known as Old U.S. 30. The photo shown here is an original brick stretch of road, Old U.S. 33, just south of Ligonier in Noble County.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
