Garage building in Wakarusa

As shown above the entrance, this former garage building in downtown Wakarusa, Elkhart County, dates to 1917. It is on West Waterford Street near the intersection with Elkhart Street in the main square. Art Deco is the architectural style and note the brick facade, too. Pfeiffer’s Garage was located here several years ago and before that Abe Bauer sold buggies from the building. Presently it is used for storage by a business. It may have been a Studebaker car dealer at one time, too.



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.
