Steam Through History

July 26-30, 2021

The Cedar Lake Historical Association and Hesston Steam Museum are partnering to tell stories of steam power history. Steam Through History is a week-long program highlighting the history of Lassen’s Resort, from its 1896 founding with a single steamboat that ferried passengers from the Monon rail depot to all points around the lake, through its bustling years as a summer getaway. The signature experience will be cruises aboard Hesston Steam Museum’s 1915 steamboat, when Cedar Lake history comes alive while discovering the science behind steam power.

Steam Through History is sponsored by Indiana Humanities, Legacy Foundation, Indiana Historical Society funded by Lilly Endowment, Inc., the Town of Cedar Lake, Schillings, & Austgen Kuiper Jasaitis P.C.
