Huntington is a town rich in local history whether it be railroads, the Wabash and Erie Canal, old houses, old roads and more. Shown is a historic marker on Jefferson Street in downtown Huntington. As you will see on the marker, it denotes the fact Jefferson Street was once part of the route for an old pioneer state road. The road is sometimes referred to as the Huntington-Goshen Road. You may recall an earlier post on my blog where I showed part of an actual remnant of the pioneer road near North Webster in Kosciusko County. The old road was located near the Wabash-Erie Canal, which was obviously no accident as it served as a way for wagons to ship goods and freight unloaded off canal boats. A good portion of what is now State Road 5 was once the Huntington-Goshen Road.
