    Sandusky Big Four Depot - 1912
    Sandusky had an elevator, store, blacksmith, etc. and after 1900, a depot, but was not a block or train order station at this time. There was a siding located and it was a regular stop for one passenger train each way and a flag stop for two others.

    It doesn't even have a post office.

    Seems as though it closed back in 1905.

    Now, you have to go to metropolitan Greensburg.
    They have all of the modern conveniences there - a post office, a Honda automobile factory ...

    In my ancient age and failing sight, I missed "Indiana" in Roger's initial post. Forgive me for being an idiot.

    I did a double-take too fitz. Indiana has more than its share of duplicated town names such as Akron, Atlanta, Boston, Galveston, New Chicago, St.. Paul and Topeka, all guaranteed to drive the USPS nuts. :D

    I would have guessed that it was because you just read the article on Sandusky OH in the latest issue of the NYCSHS Central Headlight. ;)
