Former South Whitley hardware building

Main drags in towns often still have historic buildings standing. This building on the east side of State Street (State Road 5) in South Whitley, Whitley County, was originally built in 1906. It was originally known as the M.H. Maston Building and served as a hardware store, as it did more recently too. The first rubber-tired buggies in town were sold here. The Neoclassical building was vacant when the photo was taken in late December 2012.



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.
