April 29, 2012

Six years after Culver’s first-ever museum opened its doors, the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver is concerned those doors may close, which AHS leaders say would be a great loss not just to local history buffs, but to virtually all facets of the community and even beyond.

As many in the area are aware, the Center for Culver History, presently located in the lower level of the Culver-Union Twp. Public Library, will be forced to depart that space in approximately 18 months, following a decision by the library’s board of directors in October, 2010.
