Livery barn in Markle

Before the automobile came and changed transportation, livery stables served a very useful purpose. They could be boarding places for horses or a place to rent a horse for transportation. Horses, of course, were valuable commodities at one time. Shown is an old livery barn still standing in the small town of Markle. It is near the Wabash River on the south end of town. Markle is in the eastern part of Huntington County.



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.
