WARSAW — Ever wonder about the trolley line that ran on Center Street in Warsaw or dancing to the Glen Miller Orchestra at the Waco Pavilion on Lake Wawasee? Maybe you’ve heard rumors of lions surfing on Winona Lake, of a ghost sighting at Winona Lake’s house known as Merbrink, or the ghost of the headless woman of Syracuse and wondered if these things were true? Or perhaps you’ve driven past Dalton Foundry or Dalite Screen and wondered how they got started or how and what is produced there? The answers to these questions and many more about our county can be found in the Kosciusko County Historical Society’s publication, The Thaddeus. The Thaddeus, published quarterly, is filled with fascinating facts and information about our county’s history with links to present day life.
The Thaddeus is available with your membership in the Kosciusko County Historical Society.
