The 2nd West Lafayette Memories Block Party, held on Saturday April 28 at the Morton Community Center, brought more than 200 local residents to share, view, and discuss West Lafayette history projects presented by students from the 2012 Purdue Archives graduate class as well as local community members and the Purdue Women's Club.

This year's theme was "The 1920's", a time of many developments in West Lafayette - from the establishment of the West Lafayette Public Library, the Purdue Women's Club, and radio station WBAA to the opening of the new West Lafayette fire house/city hall (Fire Station #1) and the opening of the "new" Morton School in the Fall of 1929.  

WLFI, TV 18, shared the attached video of the event with YouTube.
