Pike Street in Goshen

Before U.S. 33 was built through Goshen in likely the late 1920s or early 1930s, Pike Street, one of the city’s oldest streets, was a main route (it still exists today). This photo shows Pike Street in its old alignment. Highway 33 was built to connect with Pike Street at a certain point and bypassed the stretch shown in this photo. The photo was taken on the city’s west side near Riverside Drive.

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.
