Welcome to 2019!
We hope that this semester will be great for you and your students.
Upcoming School Programs

We are offering two school programs this spring semester that will help your students understand two very important time periods in local history:

The Fur Trade Program

March 19-22, 2019
9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Through an audio-visual presentation and hands-on artifacts, the Fur Trade Program will help students understand how northern Indiana developed from a frontier wilderness into our current community. 
This program also includes a visit to a very small portion of the historic St. Joseph-Kankakee River Portage that French explorer Robert LaSalle used in 1679 (weather permitting). Contact our Tour Coordinator at or (574) 235-9664, ext. 239.

Civil War School Program

April 9-12, 2019
9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
This popular program gives a general overview of America's greatest conflict. Through presentations and artifacts students will learn how the Civil War shaped the America in which we now live. Students will have the opportunity to interact with Civil War reenactors and find out how the common soldier lived. Contact our Tour Coordinator at or (574) 235-9664, ext. 239.
