Images of Modern America: Southern St. Joseph County
The changing world of the 1960's forced adaptation upon southern St. Joseph County, which was still trying to retain a rural identity in the towns of North Liberty, Walkerton, and Lakeville. By the decade’s end, Studebaker had closed, and multi-generational family farms had been sold to accommodate the creation of Potato Creek State Park. The early 1980's brought further challenges for community leaders tasked with consolidating area schools to form the John Glenn School Corporation. Through all of this, the community retained its steadfast commitment to fellowship and local charm. Festivals, parades, church gatherings, and school activities reinforce what it means to be a Hoosier in southern St. Joseph County.
