Former Pierceton Train Depot

Originally built in the 1860s, the former train station in Pierceton, Kosciusko County, is one of the oldest surviving depot buildings in northern Indiana. It served as a station for passenger service on the old Pennsylvania Railroad. The railroad line is still used today though by a different company. Located just east of State Road 13, the building still has a classic train station feel though now it is used for banquets, weddings, reunions and more.



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.
