Car garage

Can you imagine a building such as this being used for a garage in today’s world? Likely not. But many years ago, when most families only had a single vehicle if they had one at all, it did serve as a garage. This building is right by the trail system running parallel to State Road 119, east of Greene Road on the west side of Goshen. It is on property with a house dating back to 1870, though this building is likely not that old.

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.
