Where was this?

A recent question among staff in the Reference/Local History Department led to this photo, taken in Crawfordsville on June 13, 1916.

Can you tell where it was taken? This corner still exists today.

Hint: It was the dedication of a marker on the site of the original building of Wabash College.

Hint: It is not anywhere near the Wabash campus today.

Give up? Take a look at the present-day spot on Google Street View. The marker may have been changed over the years...but the house behind the crowd has survived.
