Assorted Restaurants of Culver
Don Marie Restaurant 01

The Don Marie Restaurant operated, apparently, on State Rd. 17 where today's Eagle's Lodge is situated. This postcard is postmarked 1978, but the next image of the restaurant is copyrighted 1958. Any information on the years of operation of the Don Marie would be welcome! Postcard donated by Jim Croy.

Fire 01 Fire 02 Fire 03

A spectacular fire claimed the long-standing bowling alley and coffee shop on Lake Shore Drive on Oct. 21, 1978. Fire departments from Culver, Plymouth, and surrounding communities assisted in quenching the blaze. The building was located a few doors east of the movie theater, almost directly across the street from the train depot in the town park, on the north side of Lake Shore Drive.
