About this collection

This collection consists of digitized postcards of Noble County Indiana from the late 1700s to early 1900s.  Most of the postcards show the town of Kendallville, IN during that time period. 

These postcards were collected and donated to the Kendallville Publie Library by a local historian and resident of Kendallville, IN, Russell Frehse (11/09/1909-02/11/2005).  

Some of the postcards were processed through the mail and have postdates on the back.  Very few postcards have the actual date, but it is evident by the images what time period they are from considering the unpaved roads, horse & buggies, or historic cars.  

As a lifetime resident of Kendallville, IN it's remarkable to see the changes that have occured over the past century or more.  

 

Images from the collection may be downloaded in reduced resolution for your personal use.  No prints are available to by mail.  If you have questions, commments, or concerns about this Digital Library, please contact Mrs.Treesh at ntreesh@eastnoble.net.  

This collection along with more postcards can be viewed in person at the Kendallville Public Library.  Copies can be made for .10-.25 cents per page depending on your color choices.  For questions about the physical collection, please contact the holding institution, Kendallville Public Library, at info@kendallvillelibrary.org.
