Here’s a very old house on the west side of Goshen. It is located on Greene Road, south of U.S. 33. Built in the 1860s, it is of the Italianate architectural
style so prominent in that era. There are still a few of these houses standing in Elkhart County and surrounding areas. We can only imagine what the few people living in the general area at that time would have thought seeing something as impressive as this being built. At that time, it was part of a very large farmstead and there were very few houses around. To the best of my knowledge, no one lives in the house presently.
