(La Porte, IN) - The La Porte County Historical Society Museum will celebrate Black History Month in February.
According to museum officials, visitors will learn about the many prominent black men and women that have made La Porte County what it is today.
Information about black doctors, humanitarians, pianists, and everyday people will be sprinkled throughout the museum. Visitors can also stop and hear the sounds of Hazel Harrison's beautiful piano playing or read about Michigan City's Elite Youth Center.
In addition to Black History month, there's also a celebration of love at the museum next month. Officials say wedding dresses from different eras will be displayed in period rooms.
La Porte County Historical Society Museum Assistant Director Danielle Adams says that she will be wearing a wedding gown around the museum every Saturday of the month.
"There is so much to get excited about, and we hope to see you soon," Adams said.
The museum is located on U.S 35 at the southern edge of La Porte.
