Church in Waterford Mills

Likely hundreds if not thousands of automobiles pass through the small unincorporated community of Waterford Mills in Elkhart County everyday. It is just south of Goshen. Many may not know the history of the community though, such as this old church on State Road 15. It was originally built in 1853 and known then as the Christian Church. It looks roughly the same as it first did with a few exceptions and is still used as a church now. State Road 15 through here was originally known as the Logansport-White Pigeon State Road and was platted in the 1830s.



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.
