Along Came Nappanee Walking Tour

Have you heard of Locke? Maybe you haven’t and maybe you have. When the B&O Railroad decided to bypass Locke and put the railroad 3 miles south, Nappanee was established. Many businesses and people started to migrate from Locke to Nappanee, Along Came Nappanee explores the feud between the two villages, businesses, and people who moved to Nappanee. Did you know that they would write to Goshen and Wakarusa newspapers about how much they did not like each other, or, well, just too really complain about each other? Locke fought hard to thrive even though they were losing their population quickly to a young Nappanee. Find out more about this feud during the walking tour!

Registration for this event will close on June 10, 2021 @ 11:59pm.
