The South Shore Line Museum Project (SSLMP) is an opportunity to add a major cultural heritage attraction to the Midwestern region that extends from the cityscape of Chicago eastward through Dunes country to Michiana.
We are an Indiana nonprofit corporation, and exempt under federal Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3), engaged in fundraising to add to our interpretive materials and promotional tools – to convert our wealth of resources into a world-class repository of assets for institutional organizations and private citizens. Secondly, we will seek to expand our physical footprint in our many communities.
If you can, please join us in this effort to preserve the story of electric interurban railroading in Northeastern Illinois and Northern Indiana. For over a century, the Chicago, South Shore & South Bend Railroad has served the communities along its route, including those folks who traveled daily to Chicago for work, shopping, and entertainment, as well as those who cheered on Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish in South Bend, those who toiled in the factories of the Calumet Region, and the many who recreated in the beauty of the Indiana Dunes. Help us keep their stories alive!
