Concrete state highway markers

Some may not be aware what is now U.S. 6 across Indiana used to be a state road, State Road 6. It followed the same route. This marker, in poor condition as it is after years of being exposed to the elements, is an old state highway right of way marker. It is found just off the intersection with County Road 23, south of New Paris in Elkhart County. County Road 23 was also once a state highway, State Road 15 before the present one was built in the 1930s. Another marker sits nearby as a clue County Road 23 was once a state highway.

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.
