This is the grave of A. Heigelein, the last victim of the infamous Belle Gunness. Shortly thereafter, she began advertising in lonely hearts columns for a fairly well-off husband.

Interested men were invited to her McClung Road farm after first being asked to convert all their holdings to cash. Helgelein came to the Gunness farm in late or early from Dakota. After a long absence and no communication, his brother wrote to Mrs. Gunness and was told that A. Heigelein had returned to Norway. On April 27, , Belle Gunness drove into LaPorte and made a will leaving all her possessions to her children should they survive her or to a Norwegian orphan home in Chicago if they did not.

Early in the morning of April 28, her farm burned to the ground and Belle Gunness and her adopted children were believed to have died in the fire. Her handy man, Ray Lamphere, was arrested for murder and arson. After his death, Lamphere was buried in Rossburg Cemetery on Hwy. On the grounds where this building now stands there was once an old frame house where William Walker lived with his family.

The garden was later flooded out by rising water levels of Clear Lake. Camps Colfax and Jackson were drilling and recruiting camps during the Civil War. Here new recruits were trained in preparation for combat in the South.

Hosting the 28th Regiment, Camp Jackson was a cavalry training site: Places of great community interest and pride, the camps were sites of huge picnics during which patriotic speeches were given by prominent men of the time. Crowds attended the dress parades of the regiments and often viewed their drilling exercises. Occasionally, the commanders at the camps marched their troops through town. These were great civic occasions.

Bands played and people cheered, waving handkerchiefs and tossing their hats high into the air. LaPorte County was one of the most patriotic counties in the nation. It has been said that three-fourths of all the able-bodied men in LaPorte volunteered for the army. It was a steam saw mill built on the shore of a small lake. The mill ran day and night to supply sawn timber needed by the growing settlement of LaPorte. A Quaker neighborhood soon developed north of the city as more families of Friends migrated from Ohio, New Jersey, North Carolina and Indiana to the county.

A private residence for many years, this red brick structure at A and Alexander Sts. According to the beliefs of the Society of Friends, men and women entered the meeting house through separate doors and sat apart from each other, divided by an aisle or low wall. The Quaker burial site on Park Street is very simple in the tradition of that faith. Here, fieldstones in neat rows mark the 54 known graves of Friends. Following the belief of the Society that individual recognition or adornment is sinful, some of the markers are not inscribed with names or dates.

One veteran of the War of , Joseph Johnson, is also buried here. This beautiful cemetery overlooking Pine Lake was begun in when the original LaPorte graveyard became too small for the needs of the growing population.

When the remains of those buried in the old cemetery were removed to Pine Lake Cemetery, bodies and many tombstones could not be identified. These were formed into an anonymous square and mass grave in the southeastern section of the new graveyard.

Some of the most interesting and touching tombstones in Pine Lake Cemetery can be found here. Eason Chapel, the Gothic style building located to the right of the main entrance, was built in as a memorial to Seth Eason by his family. People from all over the Midwest came to LaPorte to enjoy many activities at the lakes, such as camping in tents and cottages, fishing, sailboating, rowing and dancing.

Another stop was made at the nearby Holmes Island resort, opened in by Mrs. Then the steamer would pass along the west bank of Pine Lake where cottages could be rented and finally along the sand bar which blocked passage into Stone Lake.

Later, in , a channel was dredged through this bar, connecting Pine and Stone Lakes. Both of these islands are now residential areas on the large peninsula that almost divides Pine Lake in two. A couple rowed well-protected from the sun with hats, long sleeves and high collars. Also located on the heavily wooded bluffs overlooking the north shore of Pine Lake were the Baptist Assembly Grounds. Indiana Baptists had obtained the land near the Pine Lake Inn and held assemblies every summer with programs of various kinds.

Special outdoor meals such as clam bakes, fish fries and corn roasts as well as other weekly entertainments were held at the many resorts. There was dancing in the evenings, both on the steamboats and at a pavilion on the Pine Lake Chautauqua Grounds.

So, by , Capt. Steamboat travel on the LaPorte lakes ended about Later, when people began to realize what a fine spot this would be for a park, City Island was no longer an island. There was another high ridge of land east of this across the channel between Lily and Stone Lakes known as Porter Hill.

To reach the swimming beach, a bridge had to be built across the channel at the end of Wirdner Ave. The American Legion donated the efforts of 30 of its members to build a 60 foot bridge in just two days. By this time, the Consumers Ice Co.

Today, through combined gifts and purchases, the park totals acres. Although much of the park has been allowed to remain in a natural state, some developments have been made: The shores of the LaPorte lakes have always been popular as outdoor recreation and camping areas.

In , the Rev. Henry Weller, the first minister of the Swedenborgian Church of LaPorte, built his house in a lovely grove of trees which sloped down to Stone Lake. This house is still in use as a private residence at Pennsylvania Ave. Small cottages were built nearby and the grove became a summer convention center for people of the Swedenborgian Church throughout the Midwest.

A pavilion was built in the center of the grove and here dances and amateur theatricals were held. Horseraces attract hundreds to the LaPorte County Fair, located from to at the site of the present high school. When photographed in the s, the County Fair was already almost eighty years old. In , only 4 years after the formation of the county, the LaPorte County Agricultural Association held its first profit-making venture: Nine years later the days of crop and livestock exhibits and horse races were established as annual events.

At first held wherever land was available, the home of the county fair for 80 years was the little hill called Mount Zion, now the site of the LaPorte High School.

The LaPorte County Fair began operating from its present location in The years of fair time since have included WLS radio barn dances, Wild West shows, the Streets of Cairo, highwire and human cannonball acts and other carnival attractions. The modern LaPorte County Fair is a showcase for 4-H Club members with thousands of dollars in premiums being won by fair exhibitors of all ages.

In , the present site was bought and the building erected. Now largely self-supporting, the County Home still provides a place to live for homeless or poor county residents. An early view of Franklin Street facing south preserves the plank pavement and hitching posts of the era; lost are the smells of open sewers and the ever-present horse manure. Michigan City probably got its name from the Michigan Road, the great thoroughfare which had its northern terminus at the mouth of Trail Creek.

Farsighted people envisioned a great lake port and city arising there which would serve the whole Midwest. One of these visionaries was Major Isaac C. Elston of Crawfordsville, who bought the land containing the creek mouth in Laid out one year later, the town site was low and swampy.

Two huge sand dunes Yankee Slide and Hoosier Slide dominated the lakefront and the creek mouth was almost silted shut with sand. Until WWI, 5th Street continued to divide the business center from the tree-lined residential area. Undeterred by these gloomy prospects, the first settlers began to arrive from the East in But soon Chicago would overshadow it, due in part to the efforts of Chicago landowner, Stephan A.

Enormous lumber stacks lined Trail Creek, covering the land which would later become Washington Park. In , the Michigan Central Railroad reached here, putting Michigan City on a direct rail line with Eastern markets. Industries began to locate in Michigan City, drawn by the easy access to markets and raw materials. Services such as hospitals, police and fire protection, public schools, street lights and streetcars were introduced as the community expanded.

Lumber boats and excursion ships made up the majority of harbor traffic. The physical environment was improved by the development of Washington Park in In the Michigan Central repair shops were moved to Niles, Michigan, and by , six hundred families had followed.

To combat this problem, a Chamber of Commerce was formed. During the next six years they succeeded in bringing 22 new factories to the area as well as building a new sewer system and the Spaulding Hotel. Michigan City was then advertised by the Chamber as a tourist resort and convention center. Tourists and summer vacationers flocked to city beaches, coming by car and electric interurban.

The Depression put many of the new factories out of business, but no banks closed in Michigan City and WPA projects kept many men employed. Elston won the coveted Indiana State Basketball Championship.

Twenty years later, at the time of this photo, lumber schooners were already archaic reminders of the past. Steamers carrying both freight and passengers had supplanted the graceful sailing vessels. As early as , a group of surveyors determined that the mouth of the creek provided the best location along the Indiana shoreline for the development of a commercial harbor and city. A signal day for the new town was July 4, , when the first commercial vessel ever entered Trail Creek.

Even though the harbor remained unfinished and inaccessible to most vessels for the next 35 years, Michigan City rapidly developed into a leading forwarding port on Lake Michigan, shipping out great quantities of grain and other farm produce which were hauled to the harbor by wagon from as far south as Indianapolis.

Temporarily stored in huge warehouses which lined the harbor, the grain was loaded into lighters, small boats which took the grain to larger ships anchored offshore in the lake. Incoming vessels brought quantities of salt, stone, shingles and other commodities. By the harbor had seen much improvement and large sailing ships were able to enter the mouth of the creek for the first time. But by then the grain and produce business had disappeared because the railroads were shipping these products directly from the hinterlands to city markets.

In place of the grain warehouses, huge lumber yards sprawled across the area that is now Washington Park, lining both sides of Trail Creek with lumber piles as high as men could stack them. Other lumber shipments were transformed by local craftsmen into fancy mouldings, doors and furniture.

The late s was the time of the great timber harvests in northern Michigan and Minnesota. Huge quantities of lumber were shipped south along the Great Lakes to ports such as Michigan City, where the lumber was then shipped by rail south and west or used locally in the county by the many wood-consuming industries such as the planning mills, cooperages, chair factories and car shops. This period marked the peak of lumber shipping to the harbor, when millions of board feet passed through the hands of the dock wallopers, or lumber shovers.

Coupled with this was the booming excursionist business which brought tens of thousands of visitors to the local waterfront by steam-powered excursion ships. Visitors came to town to tour the State Prison, climb Hoosier Slide and to enjoy the recreational facilities at Washington Park. Tourists from all parts of the world arrived by excursion trains and ships to climb the huge sand dune, rewarded at the top with a spectacular view. Like many other lake dunes, Hoosier Slide was mined for use as land fill and in glass making.

At one time it was nearly feet tall, mantled with trees. Cow paths marked its slopes and people picnicked upon its crest. With the development of Michigan City, the timber was cut for building construction and the sand began to blow, sometimes blanketing the main business district of the town on Front St. The summit, where weddings were sometimes held, afforded an excellent view of the vast lumberyards which then covered the Washington Park area. When it was discovered that the clean sands of Hoosier Slide were useful for glassmaking, the huge dune began to be mined away.

Dock workers loaded the sand into railroad cars with shovel and wheelbarrow to be shipped to glassmakers in the U. Captain Allen Kent center of the U. Life Saving Service and his eight man crew were sources of pride to city residents at the time of this portrait.

In , the forty year old Life Saving Service became part of the U. The building was constructed in by the U. The most famous of these lighthouse keepers was Harriet Colfax, who worked for 43 years until her retirement in The Coast Guard took over the lighthouse service after the death of the last lighthouse keeper in In , the Michigan City Historical Society leased the building from the city, restoring and establishing a museum in the lighthouse.

Winterbotham and dedicated on Decoration Day, Barker paid for a bandshell and a picnic peristyle. Swimming was almost impossible in the heavy woolen bathing costumes stylish at the turn of the century. These properly attired bathers were content to sedately wade and splash at the foot of Hoosier Slide.

Originally, men and women had used separate bathing beaches. The Oasis Ballroom was built probably in front of the present concession stand in for dance-mad Chicagoans and Michigan Cityites. All the big name bands played there as well as the local groups. The Zoo was begun in , financed and built by area residents.

Such government relief programs as the WPA sent almost 2, unemployed workers into the park to build the stone benches, zoo buildings and the Observation Tower, and to landscape Yankee Slide, a tree-covered sand dune. On April 9, , 10, pine trees were planted by 5, school children around the Observation Tower. Some of these trees can still be seen. Both Washington Park and the zoo are open to the public.

Parking, a beach and picnic sites are available. Snarltown, a thriving red-light district south of Hoosier Slide, had long attracted many to the dune area. It was in front of that depot that the funeral train bearing the body of Abraham Lincoln stopped at 8: The train halted under a 35 foot memorial arch which had been constructed over the tracks.

The arch bore sayings in honor of the president and was decorated with flap, evergreen boughs, and choice flowers. The people of Michigan City were able to enter the funeral car to pay their last respects to the great man before the train continued on to Chicago and eventually Springfield, Illinois. The second Michigan Central depot, located approximately at the site of the present depot, burned in A large freighthouse and handsome passenger depot built in by the Monon RR were a block further west across Franklin St.

To the north, at the harbor on the east side of Franklin St. Once a familiar landmark at the harbor, the engine repair shop building, built in , was on the National Register of Historic Places until it was demolished in June, The railroads, along with the harbor, once played a major part in the economic activity of the town.

Now only the tracks and the small depot remain as evidence of their prominence in our past. The grain elevator at the harbor was built by Cargill, Inc.

For a time the company shipped out tens of thousands of tons of soybeans by large commercial ships. Grain ships, along with those transporting salt to be used on highways during the winter, were the last large commercial vessels to use the Michigan City harbor.

The historical marker on the southeast corner near the courthouse commemorates the passage of the Michigan Road, which ran from Madison, Indiana, on the Ohio River, to Lake Michigan at Michigan City. It terminated at the corner of Michigan Blvd. Set aside by Isaac C. Elston, the founding father of Michigan City, this square block was used as a park and as an open air market for various goods and farm produce.

We went for the lobster special. The lobster and the sides It included two salads and one side--we got the cottage fries were excellent.

The service was attentive. Unfortunately, we were seated between two large, loud groups and couldn't hear other over the noise. Tough to communicate with your partner across the table! It was tough to hear at the table, But the bar was 10x worse! But food was great! Free Valet was nice. Just wish it was quieter! As usual the food is really good, but what makes this place so good is the service. Any request within reason has always been taken care of.

The folks remember us even though we do not frequently make it out to this location. Highly recommend to anyone! There is nothing better!!

To top it off the food was amazing. I'm sure everyone in the party will be returning.

Almost everything was ok, except the gas-bag at the next table who didn't keep his conversation should at his table. It wasn't the restaurant's fault except that it shouldn't have seated anyone near this jerk and I should have asked to be moved.

Anyway, our party came for the summer lobster special. For lobster eaters, this is a big deal and everyone in our group except me was in that category. They all enjoyed their lobsters and sides and wine and I enjoyed them and veggies. Lots of competition in the area with better pricing. Service was brash at times but a bit entertaining too.
