Former Ebenezer Brown farm

On County Road 22, historic itself, just northeast of Goshen in Elkhart Township there is a historic farmhouse. The house was originally built in 1834 by Ebenezer Brown in the Greek Revival style. After the Brown family came to Elkhart County from New York, Ebenezer was active in local politics including serving as county sheriff. Near the farmhouse at one time was the old Pumpkinvine Railroad.



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.
