Mock barn near North Webster

Mock is a common last name around North Webster and Syracuse in Kosciusko County. A few live around Milford, too. This barn was built by George Mock who was part of a family that dates to the early years of the county. The barn, moved to its present location, was originally built in about 1870, if not sooner. It is need of repairs and is not used for much today except some storage. Descendants of this Mock family still own the barn. It is located off County Road 500 North, east of State Road 13 in Tippecanoe Township.

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.
