Historic Lake County Yearbooks

Cover for the 1952 Merrillville High School Yearbook

We are digitizing our historic high school yearbook collection! We have yearbooks dating back to 1908, and it's time that they were preserved for posterity.

Check out the project and flip through the ones we've finished - they're a great resource for genealogists, local historians, and anyone who's just feeling a bit nostalgic.
