Members of Ms. Raeann Stevens’ Digital Citizenship class from Culver Community Middle / High School visited the Museum of Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee History this morning. The seventh graders had a brief tour of the Peterson Room and the current exhibit on farming in Union Township, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the large portion of the collection which is not on display.

 

You are invited to attend the premiere of the video, Lake Maxinkuckee: A History, on September 15 at 10:00 a.m. at the Depot in Culver.  This video, underwritten by the Marshall County Community Foundation, focuses on the history of Lake Maxinkuckee, the town of Culver, Culver Academies, and the community of residents on the lake’s shores.
 
The documentary explores the unique way in which those communities have intersected to create a small, close-knit town and nearby farming area as well as the cultural and literary community, which includes notables like Cole Porter, Lew Wallace, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., and James Whitcomb Riley. The stories of the Native American community, the ice industry, and the first integrated basketball team will also be told.  
 
There is so much interesting history packed into this video, you won’t want to miss it, if you will be in the Culver area on September 15.
 
The event is open to everyone and is free of charge.
 
We hope to see you there!

It was the year World War I began, though in Culver it was the year electricity arrived in town, the public library was launched, and an array of roads went from muddy wagon tracks to gravel, among other news of note. The entire year’s worth of Culver Citizen newspapers from 1914 is available, full-text and searchable, to add to our existing collection of more than 20 years’ worth of Culver newspapers, which can be accessed here.
