Former railroad freight house in Goshen

Several years ago it was common for a railroad depot and freight house to be next to each other or at least in close proximity. In Goshen, along the former Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad line, this building once served as a freight house for the railroad. It is located just off Lincoln Avenue on the east side of Goshen near the present day railroad tracks that cross Lincoln. There may be a business utilizing the building 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.
