The Bay View Historical Society Annual Dinner

Saturday, April 28th, 2018 – South Shore Yacht Club
Click here for details




All are welcome to this free presentation & potluck event!

At our next membership meeting on Monday, April 2nd, Ron Winkler will present a slide show about the Tippecanoe neighborhood. This is the neighborhood just south of Bay View where pioneers James Howard, Isaac Austin, Morgan Burdick, and the Van Beck family had their farms. The old Lake Town Hall was located on the southeast corner of Howell and Howard (site of today’s Tippecanoe Library).

In 1893, John Saveland purchased land north of Howard Avenue for his real estate developments of Lincoln Park and Bunker Hill. Those dubdivisions feature a diverse housing stock on some of the largest lots in the city. Saveland built his own home here and it still stands next to Saveland Park, a remnant of his Lake Tippecanoe Amusement Park.

Nearby, he built a dance hall on the foundation of Isaac Austin’s barn. The dance hall is gone, but Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church was built on the same foundation that was a barn and amusement hall.
This neighborhood is also home to St. Veronica Catholic Church, Resurrection Lutheran Church, and Woodlawn Cemetery.



Play Reading at Beulah Brinton House

There will be a reading of a new play, A Vision of Light, written by Scott Kopischke at the historic Beulah Brinton House, 2590 S. Superior Street.  The reading will be on Monday, April 23 at 7pm and is free of charge.

In A Vision Of Light, four geniuses, in separate incidents, each experience similar life-changing events. They all find their way to the same hospital seeking treatment. When the local bishop hears of their shared plight, he believes there may be a spiritual component to their experiences, and he sends a priest to investigate.
