Pioneer road near North Webster

For me anyway, getting to see this old wagon road was a special treat. It is just southeast of North Webster in Kosciusko County. It is believed to be a remnant of the old Goshen-Huntington State Road. It certainly looks like a wagon road and note to the left the cut through the rise in the grade to make it easier for wagons to get through. The remnant is only a few hundred feet long. Makes one wonder how many similar remnants still exist off the beaten path. Out of respect for the privacy of the property owner I won’t give a more precise location.

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.
