Inscription. The railroad came to Ligonier in 1858 and was then called the Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana Railroad. Later the New York Central purchased the railroad line and a new depot for passenger service was built. The yard surrounding the depot was landscaped with a large buckeye tree used for shade. Many of our Jewish settlers would use the railroad on weekends to go Chicago and Toledo returning on Sunday evenings.
