September 10, 2022 Dillinger Raid

Last year’s “Dillinger Raid” was monumental and became a new first of it’s kind event for the Kosciusko County Historical Society.  In the past, the museum simply hosted walking tours.  (Notorious bank robber, John Dillinger, came through Warsaw in 1934, robbing the Warsaw Police Station.)  However, in 2021, in addition to the walking tours and displays of the museum, there was a classic car show.  A famous car that John Dillinger drove was on display as well as over 30 classic 1930’s cars and 3 classic car clubs.  Oldies 101 classic radio, food vendors and crafters rounded out the city block of activities and over 800 people went through the Museum in two days!!!

This rounding successful event has prompted a repeat this fall and a possible annual performance for the museum.   We are again asking the classic car clubs to come display their cars on September 10th.  In addition, we invite crafters and vendors to return as well.  Hopefully we will bring back the radio station too.  Finally, we may also try for a live reenactment that day.

Although we are still in planning stages and may come up with more, we have set a date that you can mark on your calendars!

Come visit the “Dillinger Raid” on Saturday, September 10th!
