As the summer months approach, Culver will once again be hosting history boat cruises on Lake Maxinkuckee.

The cruises are designed to educate and entertain passengers about the events and history of the lake and local area. Jeff Kenney, local historian and Culver Academies museum curator, will be discussing the Potawatomi Indians that inhabited the area, and notable cultural and literary figures that frequented the community.

History cruises will take place between May 15th and August 26th with 16 seats available on each boat. The event lasts between 90 minutes and two hours. Food is provided on some of the cruises, according to a press release.

Kenney will also take time during the cruise to discuss some of the history behind Culver Academies and the famous graduates of the schools. More information can be learned by contacting the BoardShop for reservations.
