Old State Road 13 near Grassy Creek

Once in a while an old alignment of a state highway is still visible even though no longer an actual road. Shown is an old alignment of State Road 13 south of North Webster in Kosciusko County. It runs parallel to the current State Road 13 and is near where the current road crosses Grassy Creek. Aerial photos of the area from the 1930s found in the county surveyor’s office confirm it was an old alignment. Obviously, though, you would not notice it unless looking for it.

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.
