Old house in west Goshen

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

Greene Road house

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.

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.
