PINE VILLAGE, Indiana (WLFI) – In a small town in Warren County is a museum of historic American artifacts. From old navy uniforms to presidential figurines, even an original newspaper print from the eighteen years, you’re bound to find some unique pieces.

Darlene Schutter, the owner of the space at Pine Village, originally operated it as an antique store. She told us that many of her family are historians and have collected all types of historical and political memories for decades. On November 22, we accepted Darlene’s invitation to visit the Collector’s Space. This day officially marked the opening of the space to the public as a museum.

Kristie McFatridge, one of the museum’s co-founders, called the opening a social gathering “We The People”.

“I just wanted to bring people together in the community, in the surrounding communities, just to come together, get to know people, reach out to people and go down this path.”

Upon our arrival, we discovered that the space is not only called a museum, but rather the “seat of the American patriots”. McFatridge explained that starting in December, they would be holding monthly meetings for what she calls “Companion Patriots” to discuss all topics, including studying the constitution, defending your rights first and foremost. second amendment, involvement in local government and pro-choice advocacy for vaccines.

When asked what it meant to her to be a ‘patriot’ McFatridge said, ‘To me being a patriot means that you are proud of history, whatever it is, and that you are proud of history. use the freedoms you have: the right to vote, the right to say what you think, the right to religion, you can go to church, you can do whatever you want. “

Looking around the head office, we saw not only historical memorabilia, but also documents, newsletters and information posters that they believe to be true and that we have not yet independently verified. .

When we asked about which side of American history involved slavery or racial assault, and whether that was also seen as something they were proud of, as we found plenty of examples around the headquarters, McFatridge told us this:

“Well, they did away with slavery and they moved on and I wouldn’t say I would be proud of it, but it’s a thing of the past.”

The group hopes that they can create a community in a way where they can exchange ideas and hope that their beliefs and experiences can also be heard.

According to the American Patriot Headquarters, the meetings are open to people from all political parties.

Newmark announces over 710,000 square feet of industrial renewals in Metro Detroit

Commercial real estate company Newmark, which has offices in Southfield and Farmington Hills, has signed 710,066 square feet of industrial leases in the Detroit subway since early 2021 on behalf of STAG Industrial Inc. of Boston.

Newmark’s Executive Managing Director, Dan Labes, represented STAG on five lease renewals at five different distribution warehouses. The leases represented a 20 percent increase in rental income on average with annual rent increases of over 3 percent on average. Renter industries ranged from 3PLs to e-commerce companies to auto suppliers.

“These transactions demonstrate the strength of the industrial market in the Detroit metro area, which continues to be an incredibly attractive metro area for industrial companies,” said Labes. “With few vacancies and a very tight market, industrial tenants looking for space are often limited in terms of relocation options, so structuring renewals becomes essential.

According to Newmark Research’s Third Quarter 2021 Metro Detroit Industrial Market Report, Metro Detroit’s vacancy rate fell 20 basis points to 4.2% in the third quarter, while just over 956,000 square feet has been absorbed.

The Kuhns Memorial Blacksmith Shop, a showcase of craftsmanship passed from pages of Oelwein history, received a much appreciated gift this week from Tim and Denise Wilson. The local couple donated cladding and other building materials to the Historical Society Museum of the Oelwein Region to repair / renovate the store, which is in the museum grounds just south of it. ‘Arnold Motors, along Highway 150 south.

During the first 50 years of the town of Oelwein, many merchants set up shops to complement the business district and meet the needs of the growing town. Among these traders was a blacksmith named Edward Kuhns. Kuhns Blacksmith Shop was located at 111-113 East Charles St., now the parking lot east of the Subway sandwich shop.

The town blacksmith was a key figure in the construction and repair of most metal objects, from hinges to plowshares. Often using a broken part as a template, a blacksmith could handcraft an entire new part with his vast metallurgical skills learned through experience. Various hammers, anvils and a forge were common tools of the trade for the strong arms of the blacksmith.

Edward Kuhns’ two sons, Joseph and Paul, learned the trade from their father, as well as additional technical knowledge as the profession evolved over the years and became more focused on welding and repair of tractors. As the Kuhns Blacksmith Shop passed to the next generation, Dale Cumberledge, husband of the Kuhns brothers’ sister, Alice, joined the business. Alice was an accountant for many years. Eventually, Cumberledge’s son-in-law Jay Keller entered the business, becoming the last of those in the family business.

Kuhns Blacksmith Shop operated for three generations and approximately 79 years before closing in 1999. These traders have left their mark on the community in everything from tractor repairs to ornamental iron railings, some of these items still in use today. ‘hui.

The history of the blacksmith trade in Oelwein is preserved inside the Kuhns Memorial Blacksmith Shop, which opened to the public in August 2013. It has been a popular point of interest for visitors to the museum since its opening. Now, museum members are working to preserve the exterior of the building in order to protect these artifacts.

The Wilson’s generous donation is a starting point for the project. Museum members hope others will see the project as a necessity and something that deserves a contribution in materials, time / labor or funds. The museum operates as a non-profit entity, therefore all donations are tax deductible. For more information, people can call 1-319-283-0786 and leave a message.

GRAVETTE – Amanda Price attended the Oct. 11 meeting of the Gravette Historical Museum Commission and donated an official tally book dated 1943.

The score book completed an item already in the museum’s collection, a chalked bulldog with the inscription “Relic of the trip to State Tourney of Jonesboro 1940”.

Amanda is the granddaughter of Olin Leonard, whose name is among the players whose names are inscribed on the Bulldog. The players whose names are listed are Norman Clark, Burt Allinder, Vance Perry, Conley Austin, Marion Roberts, David Ralston, Olin Leonard, Kenneth Zimmerman, Jack Russell, Floyd Russell, Donald Wells, LM Pearson, WP Ellis, Nelson Leonard, Haddon Leonard, Lindsey Motley and Durrill Gunsaulas.

There is an interesting story behind the Bulldog, a sort of trophy for the trip the city basketball team made to Jonesboro. Apparently there was no trophy to hand over to the winning team, which was Gravette. After the game, the team traveled to Memphis, Tenn. Wanting something to commemorate their victory, the team members bought a lion. When they couldn’t find one, they settled on the bulldog to signify their victory.

Other inscriptions on the bulldog include the word “Oscar”, which is presumed to be the team name for the dog, and the words “Yes, Thelma” on the right side. No one has been found to verify Thelma’s identity.

“7 miles from Missouri and 10 miles from Oklahoma” has been listed, presumably to describe Gravette’s location, and “Homestead Inn” and “Pivot Rock” likely identify where the team stayed on the trip and a location that they visited in Eureka Springs on their way home.

Price said the scoreboard and other record books were found in a barn on her grandfather’s property, where she now lives. The Leonard farm served as a polling station for rural voters in La Gravette for many years.

Dacia Harwood, Director of the Historical Museum of Santa Barbara, said: “Huguette Clark and her family have had a long-standing impact on Santa Barbara. The Historical Museum has hosted numerous lectures on his fascinating life, and we are delighted to reveal his work to our community.

While this exhibit offers a taste of Clark’s legacy, the Bellosguardo Foundation remains focused on opening the estate. To allow public tours, the foundation works through the city’s conditional use permit process. The proposal adds ADA access and toilets.

The Historic Monuments Commission carried out a conceptual review and unanimously approved the foundation’s request. Since then, the foundation has been working on the technical aspects of the project and is ready to submit finalized plans and appear before the city planning commission.

The community is encouraged to visit the Bellosguardo Foundation website, www.bellosguardo.org, and add their names to the list of supporters asking the city to approve public access.

“Revealing Ms. Clark’s works for the first time in 90 years is just the beginning, and much more to come,” said Sandi Nicholson, board member of the Bellosguardo Foundation. “Our goal is to open the domain to the public as an arts center.

The museum is located in historic downtown Santa Barbara at 136 East de la Guerra Street. Entrance to the museum is free. The hours are currently Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. and Thursdays from noon to 7 p.m.

LOWELL, Michigan – The Lowell Area Historical Museum is looking to renew the mileage during the November election.

The museum displays pieces of the city’s history dating back to 1848. Officials say that by voting yes, it allows them to recount the parts not yet written.

“Lowell has an amazing story,” Lisa Plank said, the museumexecutive director of. “It’s one thing to read about the story in a book, but quite another to see it in front of you and realize that it has a direct connection to you.”

The museum displays over 190 years of stories, artifacts and images, which include Lowell’s key role in the early days of Michigan’s fur trade history, the home of one of the country’s most eminent architects, and how showboats became popular in the city dubbed after entertaining cruises.

“Local history is especially important for understanding the place and how it developed and what were the key events in their past,” Plank said.

According to Plank, 35,000 people visit the museum each year and up to 150,000 go online.

The museum began in 2003 after voters approved a mileage that would partially fund the museum’s running costs.

A mileage has already been renewed once with “overwhelming support”.

Renewing this year would keep the tax rate at 0.25 thousandths or 25 cents for every $ 1,000 of assessed value. It provides about $ 20,000.

“It really helps ensure the day-to-day operations that we do: school programs, public exhibits, artefact maintenance,” Plank said.

Without the funds, Plank says their services would likely be cut significantly. She encourages people to vote yes.

“I don’t think we would be able to continue doing the programming and the services that we do if we lost this,” Plank said. “We hope the community will continue to support what we do here and see and appreciate everything we do in the community.”
