This event has passed.

Nappanee’s downtown has seen many different looks and businesses over the years. Demolition, Destruction and Revitalization explores the town’s transformation. Find out what building burned to the ground and caused many from surrounding areas to speculate that the entire city would go down in flames. Hear about the Community Building, the largest gym in the county before North Side Gym, and why it was torn down and made into a parking lot. Learn how a “hospital” has seen many faces since its original beginning and about the original uses of some of the most popular businesses in Nappanee. You’ll also learn about Nappanee’s Fire department along the way and how they went from hose cart teams to the Smokey Stovers!

Registration for this event will close on June 3, 2021 @ 11:59pm.
