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

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
