Yoeman was also known as Lenox. The station was listed as Lenox on Timetable #4 Louisville, New Albany and Chicago in 1884 until 1924 when the station was listed as Yoeman. The community was established in 1879 and platted in 1880. The name comes from Colonel S.N. Yoeman, one of the contractors associated with the building of the Indianapolis Delphi and Chicago, through his firm of Yoeman, Hegler and Company. He also became involved in the ID&C, including its change to standard gauge after acquistion by the LNA&C. The depot was constructed in 1902.

Birds eye view of Lennox and Yoeman, date unknown. Both photos were taken from the elevator. Left: Look real close on the depot and you will see the name Lennox. On the Right is the depot with the sign board Yoeman. No date on either photo. When the name was changed, the Lennox sign was removed and the other side was lettered for Yoeman and put back up. -Ron Marquardt Collection and MRHTS Collection-
