Leesburg Train Station

Granted, it doesn’t look like much now but this chunk of concrete is part of the history of Leesburg, as well as Kosciusko County. It is a remnant of the foundation of the train depot that once existed in Leesburg. It can be found off the east side of Old SR 15 before it jogs to the east across the railroad tracks. You likely won’t notice it unless you are looking for it, but it’s part of local history. Train stations were community gathering places and, in the early days, a connection with the outside world.

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.
