9780884692843: Winona at 100 Third Wave Rising

A definitive new Centennial history of Winona Lake, Ind., written by Terry White with Steve Grill, both Grace College graduates and now faculty members. This is a story of past glories and current restoration.

The 20 chapters detail the First Wave -- from the Indian settlers through the Beyer Brothers' Spring Fountain Park and the huge success of the Chautauqua era. Then the Second Wave details when Winona Lake was known worldwide as the "world's largest Bible conference." And finally, the Third Wave--the takeover of all the assets and liabilities of the Winona Christian Assembly by Grace College & Seminary in 1968 and the forming of Winona Restoration Partners in 1994. Since then, more than $35 million has been poured into restoring the Village at Winona to be a charming artisan's colony lining the canal and containing art galleries, weavers, woodworkers, photographers, painters, world-class restaurants, and much more.

Later chapters detail specifics such as the history of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches which is headquartered in Winona. There's a chapter on "crimes and tragedies" and one on the worldwide impact of organizations that started in Winona and now reach out worldwide.

And finally, there's a walking tour--keyed to pages in the book that give architectural and historical details on each of the sites. Both the serious historic researcher and the casual reader will find something new--and something to like--in the pages of Winona at 100.

From the Author:

I'm an unabashed supporter of the great little town of Winona Lake, Indiana!

I first encountered Winona Lake when, as a pre-teen, I was brought to it by my parents who were attending a religious conference. Later I lived there for 17 years and got deeply involved in the community, in many of its institutions, and became fascinated with its rich and varied history.

When I returned in 2003 to live in Winona Lake, I realized the centennial was coming. The town was incorporated June 2, 1913. So, after having collected material for about nine years, I began writing the history in earnest, aiming for a release date just before the Centennial celebration. Dozens of current and former residents have been helpful in proofreading, fact-checking, and otherwise enriching the text.

This has been a labor of love. May it enrich and enlighten readers for many years to come. Winona's history is great, but its future (the Third Wave is rising!) is even greater! Check out zipcode 46590 and come see for yourself!

From the Back Cover:

 
Winona at 100: Third Wave Rising
The Remarkable History of Winona Lake, Indiana
 
In 1881 the Beyer brothers purchased land for their dairy business and began developing the shores of Winona Lake, Indiana, into a resort. In 1894 Dr. Solomon Dickey, a leader of the Presbyterian Church, purchased the park and formed The Winona Assembly and Summer School Association. Led by a board that included H. J. Heinz, John Studebaker and William Jennings Bryan, it soon saw seasonal visitors increase rapidly.  The town incorporated in June, 1913.
 
A young baseball player-turned-evangelist began to call Winona Lake home. Assisted by his songleader, Homer Rodeheaver, Billy Sunday had a dynamic ministry that reached millions. Winona became known worldwide as the home of the world's largest Bible conference--the Second Wave. Youth for Christ was founded, Billy Graham's evangelistic ministry was launched, and Winona was the capital of the gospel music world.

The Third Wave--now rising--began with Grace College and Seminary assuming the Assembly's assets and liabilities in 1968 and the subsequent formation of Winona Restoration Partners in the early 1990s. This is a tale of past glories and current restoration.
