See and Be Part of Region History
The public is invited to join Westchester Township History Museum staff in commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first panoramic photograph of downtown Chesterton … and become part of history by lining the sidewalks along the intersection of Calumet and Broadway as Dan Bruhn takes a new panoramic photo from the northwest corner of Thomas Centennial Park at 3 pm today [[ Friday, August 9 ]].
The historic panoramic photograph, taken by Harry Bortz and donated to the Westchester Township History Museum by the Chesterton Tribune, was taken at 4 pm on August 9, 1913, showing the downtown intersection of Calumet and Broadway, with its horse-drawn carriages, vintage automobiles, and numerous townsfolk.
Refreshments will be served afterwards at the Library Service Center, 100 W. Indiana Avenue, Chesterton, where the 1913 photograph will be displayed.
