Middlebury celebrating an anniversary

Middlebury its celebrating its 175th anniversary. The town was chartered in 1836 in the infancy years of Elkhart County. Only a handful of families lived in all of Middlebury Township at the time. Visit the Middlebury Community Historical Museum, 301 W. Bristol Ave. (CR 8), to see interesting artifacts and documents showing a progression of the town’s history. You’ll have a better understanding of life in Middlebury through the years. The museum is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Call (574) 825-0978 for more information.

Middlebury's history museum


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.
