They once said “fill ‘er up”

Now a car lot, this building on U.S. 33 on Goshen’s south side, across from Goshen High School, used to be a gas station. Originally built in 1927, it was once known as the Indian gas station. At the time the gas station was built, this road was still officially known as the Lincoln Highway. Later the Lincoln Highway was rerouted and became what we know now as Old U.S. 30. There are still a few of the older service station buildings around and many of the buildings are used for something else besides selling gas.

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.
