Culvert on former Wabash Railroad

Tracks were originally laid for the old Wabash Railroad in Elkhart County in the early 1890s. Shown is an old culvert above a ditch that used to be part of the railroad line. Almost hidden to those driving by unless looking for it, the culvert is located just off County Road 15 in Union Township, Elkhart County. It is just west of New Paris. As evidenced in the background, cattle are raised on the farm there.



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.
