Public Library - Michiana - Cressy & Everett Real Estate

If you'd like to see interesting items that tell the history of the Michiana area, you won't have to leave your house to do it. The St. Joseph County Public Library has several online digital collections spotlighting Michiana that you can access online.

Our real estate agents suggest exploring the following collections to learn more about the Michiana area of northern Indiana and southwest Michigan.

  • Oral Histories
    The library's oral history collection preserves the stories of South Bend and St. Joseph County residents, presented in their own words. "South Bend Stories" were recorded in 2015 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of South Bend. They include stories from longtime WSBT radio personality Jon Thompson, who shares his account of surviving and reporting on the blizzard of 1978. "Michiana Voices" includes memories from Ben Johnson, an administrator and presidential aide who talks about attending Riley High School and living in South Bend in the '50s and '60s, as well as those from activist Glenda Rae Hernandez, who speaks about discrimination in housing and other topics.

Landscaping Prep - Cressy & Everett Real Estate

When it comes to landscaping a yard, preparation is important to make sure everything is done efficiently and effectively. It helps you determine the project's budget, creates an ideal environment for introducing additional or new features, and lessens chances of delays when the project commences. Here's a guide from our real estate agents on things you can do to plan, organize and prepare for landscaping:

  • Evaluate Your Yard
    Start with an evaluation of your yard and make an inventory of the permanent structure it and their placement. This helps you to focus on areas that will be most affected by the project and understand their preparation needs. For example, if you want to add a water feature, you need to know the proximity to an electrical power source or locations of hidden hazards. Also, mark hardscape and softscape features that do not fit into your landscaping plan.

  1. Make a Schedule
    Approaching your home room-by-room is the best way to ensure you effectively deep clean your house at any time of the year.
