  • Stone’s TavernN41º25.606’ W85º35.153’5111 lincolnway southligonier, Indiana 46767

    stone’s Tavern was one of Noble County’s first “commercial” structures. Built by Richard stone, the now restored tavern was opened for travelers in 1839. The tavern was the center of activity for town meetings, post office, stagecoach stop, jury room, jail, dance hall and rest stop for travelers. due to it’s huge size and it’s location along the well traveled trail, it quickly became an early 1800’s area landmark. The building was operated as a tavern from 1839 until about the time of the Civil War when it was sold. The value of the tavern was lost and it was then used as a home and later a barn.

  • Little Red School HouseN41º34.950’ W87º27.690’7205 Kennedy Ave.hammond, Indiana 46323

    Constructed in 1869, the little red school-house is one of the oldest buildings in ham-mond. Notice the difference of the building materials of the lower and upper halves of the wall. Builders started with limestone but transporting the stone proved too expensive and midway through construction a clay pit was found at the nearby little Calumet River and the clay used to finish the building. Although no longer used as a school after 1896, the building remained a focal point for the community, serving as headquarters for William Jennings Bryan’s 1896 presidential campaign, a dance hall, a place of wor-ship, a funeral parlor, a community meeting hall and a private residence. The hessville historical society purchased the sturdy building in 1971 for one dollar and The little red schoolhouse reopened as a museum and community center.
