Today the road doesn’t really take you close to Goshen at all, but many, many years ago it did. Shown is a stretch of the former Huntington-Goshen Road in Whitley County, between South Whitley and Larwill. Now it is known as State Road 5. Originally it was part of one of the earliest state routes in Indiana, the Huntington-Goshen Road. As the name implies, it connected the towns of Huntington and Goshen. It passed through South Whitley on its way north to Goshen. The road was an important route allowing those from the south to come to the mills in or near Goshen. Eventually when roads were reconfigured in Indiana it was broken up into multiple roads, some of them now county roads and others state roads. Look to the left in the photo and the rise in the grade may indicate an older alignment of the road.
