South Whitley historical marker

It blends in to the surroundings and you can easily miss it. On Calhoun Street in South Whitley, Whitley County, just north of Front Street, is a historical marker. The year 1887 etched into the marker is proof as it sits in the street right of way and almost looks like a flower pot of some type. A school building was once located at the site. Possibly it was the high school at one time.



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.
