MERRILLVILLE, Ind. - June 17, 2014 - PRLog -- Ogden Dunes, boasting more than 200 historic images, authors Dick Meister and Ken Martin provide the history of a unique and dynamic residential community over the decades of the 20th century.

Ogden Dunes documents the community as it evolved from a highly restricted upscale resort community for Chicagoans and a bedroom community for the Gary upper-middle-class to becoming a middle-class residential community serving the returning G.I.s and their families after 1945. Authors Meister and Martin hope that the publication of this book will encourage current and future residents of all communities to save their family and community photos and stories so that future historians can continue to write community histories.

All of the profits from the sale of the book are being donated to the Historical Society of Ogden Dunes. Eighty percent of the images in the book came from local residents who have donated them to the Historical Society as well as images from private family collection.
