This well known photo shows Goshen residents driving the Lincoln Highway in 1914. Visible in the background is the Chase Bag Company building. Chase Bag closed down years ago, but the building has been remodeled and is now a collection of shops, artists studios, and restaurants, known as The Old Bag Factory.
If you attend the 17th Annual National Conference of the Lincoln Highway Association in South Bend this summer, a visit to The Old Bag Factory is on the agenda.
