This event has passed.

Nappanee was built on the foundation of trailblazers. If not for those pioneers who happened to be entrepreneurs too, Nappanee would not be what it is today. Entrepreneurs, Pioneers and Trailblazers explores those pioneers. The oldest family owned jewelry store, bakery, Nappanee’s very own telephone company, Elkhart County’s largest general store, and Nappanee’s first hotel are included on this tour, including the men and women behind them. How could a jewelry store that has had 4 generations of owners still be around today? How did Nappanee come to have a telephone company? Where was the first hotel located? What restaurant in Nappanee had the first air conditioning in Indiana? Find out more about these pioneers during the walking tour!

Registration for this event will close on June 17, 2021 @ 11:59pm.
