If these walls could talk: 101 N. Main Street

May 28, 2012

For this week's installment of our ongoing series of historical "walks" through Culver's downtown, I have to resist the temptation to tell the "story" of the State Exchange Bank (today's First Farmers Bank) as an institution, and the giants who made it what it was (such as W.O. Osborn). It's a remarkable story on multiple levels, and you can read it online at the Culver Public Library's and Judi Burns' websites, and in Latham Lawson's extensive printed history, archived at the Center for Culver History on Main Street.

Locals share ideas at ‘town hall’ meeting on museum’s future

May 26, 2012

Several options were brought to the table at the May 12 "town hall" style meeting hosted by the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver at the Culver Elemen­tary gymnasium, but the central goals of the meeting were to get ideas flowing, and to enlist the voices, minds, and hands of the Culver community in preserving its history.

The meeting was motivated by the 18-month time frame before the Center for Culver History, the AHS' museum and research center, must leave its present home in the lower level of the Culver-Union Township Public Library.
