Our Allen County Resources have grown recently with additions to a couple of pre-existing databases and a couple of new sources as well.

We have City of Fort Wayne Water Works, 1931-1981, with a history of the Water Works and the St. Joseph Pumping Station, with Three Rivers Filtration Plant Functions, a nifty flow diagram and some great photographs!
Speaking of great photos, we have the Embassy Theatre Commemorative Photographs, 1928-1978, with a history of the theater and wonderful photos of the Embassy and of its incarnation as the Emboyd Theatre.
We also have a copy of the Washington Township (Allen County, IN) School yearbook, “The Wildcat” for 1957-1958. “The Wildcat” includes individual photos for each student and teacher from kindergarten to eighth grade, and group photos for sports, yearbook staff, etc. Since this belonged to a student, there are even a few autographs.
Additions to the Lindenwood Cemetery Index for 2015 have been added. Lindenwood is one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in Allen County and is on the National Register.

Finally, 62 new booklets and documents comprising more than 1400 images have been added to the General Electric Collection in the Elex section. As one of Fort Wayne’s largest employers in the 20th century, this collection is a tremendous addition to our local history.
