Lincoln Avenue bridge

Not many of the older roadway bridges remain on major thoroughfares in towns. Here is one exception. This is the Lincoln Avenue bridge across the Elkhart River in Goshen. It is a beautiful concrete arch bridge originally built in 1927 when automobiles were becoming a more prominent form of transportation. A similar bridge across the same river is to the north across Pike Street.

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.
