Old schoolhouse on State Road 4

Now apparently used for storage on a farm, this building was originally the Shrock School, a one-room schoolhouse. It is located on State Road 4, east of Goshen, and west of County Road 35. The brick building dates to the 1870s. A front porch, as well as a front gable identification marker, have been missing for many years. The school closed in 1924 and students were then bussed to another nearby school. A wood frame building was erected on the same site in the 1850s and replaced by the brick building.

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.
