A 1908 crop form postcard, clearly labeled the "Culve Citizen" on the side of the building.

    of this era - an account is found in the Culver Ctizen of July 11, 1974:
      Just to keep the record straight it might be added that Mr. Corwin omitted one home of The Citizen. It was in a two-story building that gave way to Johnson's Service Station years after the paper moved to its present location.

      Here The Citizen has expanded, taking over the entire first floor and basement after the Northern Indiana Public· Service Company moved to its present quarters. Modern machinery and equipment have been added from time to time until none of the machinery is left that was in the shop 21 years ago. Modern automatic presses and machinery have been installed, giving The Citizen the best equipped newspaper-commercial printing plant in any town its size in the entire state.
1913 July 3 — As soon as this issue of The Citizen is off the press, the task of moving the plant into the new Austin building begins.

1913 - Aug. 28 - The room formerly occupied by The Citizen is being prepared for the use of the primary department of the public school which has been crowded out of the large building.

1913 Nov. 6 - Charles Stahl has equipped the second story of the former printing office building with kitchen sinks and city water
