Historical Society of Ogden Dunes
Phone: (219) 762-8665
A decade ago, the Town Board of Ogden Dunes appointed a historian, to the just-forming Portage Community Historical Society, to represent itself. A four-person historian/archivist committee was created at the end of 1988. Finally in 1991, the Historical Society of Ogden Dunes, Indiana, was incorporated and opened to regular members. Several programs were held at the town firehall. In 1992, Sue Mechtersheimer loaned the society a house to use as a museum for local history and art. Sue gave the Hour Glass to the Historical Soc. of Ogden Dunes, Inc., the next year.
