Lincoln Highway remnant in LaPorte County

Unless you are looking for one or have seen an old map and know about where it should be, finding an old remnant of a highway is sometimes difficult. Here is a remnant of the old Lincoln Highway in LaPorte County, near State Road 2 and east of the town of LaPorte. The road (CR 450 now) used to go straight instead of turning as it does now. The remnant appears to be someone’s driveway now.

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.
