Lockerbie Square takes its’ name from Lockerbie Street, which came from the Lockerbie Family who platted out portions of the district. Most of the original construction dates from the mid - to late -1800’s. Renovation and revitalization has been taking place since the 1970’s. One of the noted residents in Lockerbie Square was James Whitcomb Riley, the much revered poet. He rented a living space at 528 Lockerbie Street – The Nickum/Holstein Home. Most noted as the author of the poem, Little Orphan Annie, he stayed there for twenty three years. Here is a small sample from his tribute to the place he dearly loved to call home. His words still ring true today!
"Lockerbie Street" by James Whitcomb Riley
Such a dear little street it is, nestled away
From the noise of the city and the heat of the day
In cool shady coverts of whispering trees.
With their leaves lifted up to shake hands with the breeze
Which in all its wide wanderings never may meet
With a resting-place fairer than Lockerbie Street! Show Less...
