Wessel Whitaker and the Early Days of New Buffalo

The town's oft-told origin story begins with Capt. Whitaker's 1834 shipwreck, but that episode is just part of an epic mix of highs and lows that faced New Buffalo's tenacious early settlers. TROTOM Board Member Nick Bogert will present an illustrated history of how New Buffalo came to be, and why it failed to become "the metropolis of the West" envisioned by early residents.
