Having lived in Valparaiso, Indiana for 4 years, I have tried to learn as much as I can about our beautiful city and the area around it. One of my favorite things to do is to walk around downtown, visit the shops stroll through the Courthouse Square, and have a meal at one of the cafes. I have recently realized that I am also experiencing Valparaiso, Indiana through Active Rain and others who have lived here.
Take Pam Hockensmith, for instance, an agent in Peoria, Arizona who grew up in Valparaiso, Indiana. I have learned so much about what Valparaiso, Indiana used to be like from her. Just yesterday, I found out through one of her comments that Valparaiso, Indiana used to have a theatre downtown called the Premier Theatre! I didn't know that. It makes so much sense that Valpo would have a theatre in the center of town. Now I just have to find out exactly where it used to be. That is my mission for today. Wouldn't it be great to have pictures of then and now?
Who would have thought that I would enjoy living in Valparaiso, Indiana as much as I do? Not me! Just goes to show that you should always be ready for a change and the results may surprise you!
