Kendallville Heritage Association
  To preserve, honor and build upon the heritage of Kendallville Indiana.

On Monday, September 28, 2010, the Kendallville Heritage Association meeting was held at 6:00 p.m. in the Kendallville Public Library.  In attendance were: Ray Scott, Terry Wagner, Tom Leedy, Terry Housholder, Kathy Young, Cheryl Coons, Eric Daniels, John Bry and Becky Daniels.
Guest, Terry Wagner , shared historical photos and information with the committee.  One of items he brought to share the 1890-1940 Golden Anniversary McCray Refrigeration Book. 
Tom Leedy suggested that our committee look at ways that they can get involved Tombstone Trail project.  One of the suggestions was to tie local architecture that correlates the homes with the individuals that are mentioned on the Tombstone Trail.  Possibly having theater people represent a character of the time period of the home to tell the story for the home and those that lived there.  John Bry mentioned that it would be good to target an area in the city and find information on the homes in that location.  Later a different target area could be looked at.  Ray Scott felt this would be a natural fit for our committee to pursue this project.  Terry Housholder thought that maybe the downtown buildings could be the first target area to focus on since KPC will be celebrating their 100th anniversary next year.  Tom Leedy suggested that we could start with 10 people from Kendallville that are highlighted on the Tombstone Trail (out of 61) and build a collection around them.  Terry Housholder suggested that we also could focus on Streets named after prominent people of Kendallville.
Cheryl Coons reported that the Kendallville Public Library will have a Photo Identification Social on Sundays, October 10, 17 and 24 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the library.  They have invited the public to look at photos from the Frehse collection for identification.
Ray Scott reported that the Mural Project is cranking up again.  MYAC is helping with the grant project.
The next meeting will be 6:00 p.m., Monday, October 25, 2010 at the Kendallville Public Library.
Meeting adjourned.
