SYRACUSE — Syracuse-Wawasee Historical Museum, located in the Syracuse Community Center, 1013 Long Drive, Syracuse, will host this summer’s second Centennial Homes program featuring the Ogden Island area of Lake Wawasee at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 15.
The owners of two century-old homes will capture the imagination of the homes’ histories for visitors who attend the presentation.
As visitors to the area and residents turn onto the island past the Spink Condos, they’ll notice a house on their left that has a varied history from being an eating establishment to a riding stable.
The house renovation appears to be Chip and Joanna Gaines’ style. Further down Ogden Island, Sue Wildman Rush and her brother, Bob, will share the history of their family home built in 1911. The old Anglers’ Cove property is also in their family, so its story will be shared along with other small groceries/eating establishments around Lake Wawasee.
The “Ogden Island Centennial Homes,” 10:30 a.m. Saturday in the Syracuse Community Center.
Take time also to visit the Syracuse-Wawasee Historical Museum, open 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday, and view its summer exhibit featuring the Wawasee Yacht Club.
