"From Moccasins to Main Street" is a new documentary about the history of U.S. 12 that is premiering this Friday, July 14, at Sturges-Young Auditorium at 7 p.m. The film is produced by Mike Mort and Lee Fraim and features many actors from the Sturgis area. Tickets for the premiere are $10 with the proceeds going to the Sturgis Historical Society and the St. Joseph County Historical Society. Organizers would prefer if you made reservations.
The documentary takes viewers through the different stages the route has seen over the years. What began as an Indian trail and ended up as U.S. 12 makes for some interesting history. Before I-94 came into existence in 1962 the current highway known as U.S. 12 was at that time known as U.S. 112.
