The Northern Indiana Center for History is the headquarters of the Northern Indiana Historical Society, the second-oldest historical society in Indiana, which was established in 1867 to collect and interpret the history of the northern Indiana region by St. Joseph County's leading citizens. The history museum occupies several buildings and includes areas dedicated to the history of the St. Joseph River Valley, the University of Notre Dame, the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, and the Kidsfirst Children's Museum. The Studebaker National Museum, which holds a large collection of wagons and automobiles from the 150-year history of the Studebaker Corporation, is adjacent to the Northern Indiana Center for History. The former South Bend mansion of Clement Studebaker, named Tippecanoe Place, is now a restaurant.I should warn you, this post may be a bit graphic intensive:) I just couldn’t help myself. I really wanted you to get a taste of all this book’s offerings. Not only does this cookbook offer a glimpse into the heritage of the St. Joseph River Valley Region of Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan with recipes but also with reflections of fashions, vintage advertisements, photographs and so much more. Many of the recipes include personal narratives from those who contributed the recipes. But, I’m getting ahead of myself, first take a look at the table of contents.
