Old State Road 15 alignment

State road alignments have changed through time for various reasons including, among others, to account for the increase in speed of automobiles. In the late 1920s and early 1930s many state highways in Indiana were either newly built or an existing road was upgraded. Shown is an old alignment of State Road 15 just north of Goshen in Elkhart County. This view is standing on the old road facing south toward the current SR 15. A Church of Christ is barely visible in the background.

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.

    Interesting. There used to be a Sinclair gas station on the point where the roads intersect here.
