The Gene Stratton-Porter Memorial Society, Inc., has a history that started in 1945 when it was organized to assist in acquiring 20 acres and buildings of the Stratton-Porter Sylvan Lake property. The home, land, some furnishings and memorabilia were purchased from Gene's daughter, Jeanette Porter Meehan in December of 1946. The site became the Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site. The Society then dissolved following the successful transfer of the property to the State of Indiana.On June 27, 1974 the 16 room log cabin on the property was placed on the National Register of Historic places. The formal garden was registered in National Gardens of America in 1987.The Society was reorganized and a certificate of incorporation was granted on January 9, 1976. The Board of Directors at that time was Donald Goings, Mary McKinney, Kent Main, Ruth Ann Figgens and Victor Nantz.In 1999 the Society raised money to build the Carriage House Visitor Center which was donated debt free to the State of Indiana. Through the years the Society has continued to follow its objective to further and promote the purposes, activities, and programs of the site in cooperation with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Museums and State Historic Sites.Society support has become increasingly important due to reductions in the Indiana tax base. We are introducing this E-Commerce site to supplement sales from our Gift Shop located in the Carriage House at the Rome City site. Thank you for supporting this legacy left to all of us by Gene Stratton-Porter. All profits are utilized at the site.
