Former interurban station in Huntington

100_2591The city of Huntington has many historic buildings and this is one of them. It is located on West Market Street in downtown Huntington and from 1919 to 1929 served as a passenger station for the Fort Wayne and Wabash Valley Traction Company, an electric interurban railway. The railway connected Huntington with Fort Wayne and also stopped in Wabash among other towns. It was known by other names, too, but the one I’m using is probably the most familiar one. There was apparently another building used for an interurban station in Huntington for a while, though I’m not sure where it was located. The building on West Market Street is among those listed in a brochure with historic properties that is available at the Huntington County Historical Museum. This building is now a commercial property.

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.
