Two wonderful events are on the Elkhart Historical Society’s calendar for October, so please make note of them.

Starting Sunday October 15th, please come see our newly created Historic Wall Mural commemorating the village of Elkhart and it's long association with Route 66. The colorful hand painted mural measuring 36 ft. long by 8 ft. high depicts historic features of the village and The Mother Road highlighted by the Route 66 shield and classic vintage cars. It will be hung on the side wall of Horsefeathers in Latham Street facing Route 66.

The second event is our 3rd Saturday Art and Craft, October 21st - - you can get a jump on Christmas gifts with some of these new offerings; as space in some classes is limited, reservations are required by Tuesday Oct 17th, and the cost for each is $30 per session made payable to the Elkhart Historical Society PO Box 255 Elkhart, IL 62634.
