Historical Society of Ogden Dunes


To preserve, protect and present the history of Ogden Dunes, Indiana.

Formed in 1988, and incorporated in 1991, the Historical Society of Ogden Dunes has been housing important town archive materials since its inception, and provides a popular and continuous series of programs since 2004, as well as regularly published newsletter. The society maintains a modest museum with limited public hours in the former O.D. and Tillie Frank home, donated by Ogden Dunes resident Sue Mechtersheimer. The Museum continues to operate with generous contributions from individuals, as well as grants from The John W. Anderson Foundation, the Ogden Dunes Community Fund, United Way of Porter County, and the Sara Lee Foundation. The Historical Society of Ogden Dunes is a 501(c)-3 not-for- profit organization.
