Pumpkinvine Railroad

310 N Harrison St
Shipshewana, IN 46565

The Pumpkinvine Railroad was not only built before the town of Shipshewana, but it was also the reason for the town! The tracks were laid in 1888 for a railroad running east and north from Goshen to Middlebury, then up through Northeast Indiana into Sturgis, and finally into Findlay, MI. Soon after, the town of Shipshewana was founded. Now a biking trail has been implemented along the old railroad route from Goshen through Middlebury/Shipshewana.
