Surely you are all familiar with the village of St. Michaels American-Russion National Orphan Home & Institution, platted in 1920. It is just down the G. A. R. Highway from the village of Seven Oaks, laid out five years later. For any unenlightened surfers out there, the area is now known as the unincorporated village of South Haven, Indiana.

Hmm, how can I sum the place up in just a couple lines? There are only four Porter County cops patrolling the whole county. Three of them cover about a third of the county each. One of them is assigned just to South Haven. Have a nice day.

The place is sometimes referred to as being in Valparaiso. Ha, Valparaiso is an incorporated city which does not include South Haven's territory. Their closest points are 3½ miles apart, as the crow flies. South Haven is a seven mile drive from downtown Valpo. The Pepe's Mexican restaurant at the northwestern corner of South Haven even advertizes itself as being in Valparaiso. I like Pepe's, particularly that one, but how does anyone besides me find it?

Across the street from the Saint Michael's subdivision and dating from before its redevelopment as South Haven was, until recently, Seven Dolors Shrine. Do not look to me for its history. Do not look to me for images of all the postcards put out of the place. Look to me for a sampling of some of the postcards put out over the years, just the ones I found for sale cheap, sometime somewhere.

Enjoy them while you can. As soon as someone complains about my infringing on his copyright of any of these images, I shall yank these from here.
