Pound Store Museum

It’s not everyday you can find a building still standing that was originally built in the 1830s. You can, though, in the tiny community of Oswego, east of Leesburg in Kosciusko County. There you will find the Pound Store Museum, Kosciusko County’s oldest commercial building still standing. It was a Native American trading post, general store and later a post office. Now, tours can be taken in the building as it is owned by the Kosciusko County Historical Society. It is open during the traditional summer season on Sundays and is located on Armstrong Road

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.
