VISIT OUR BUSINESS HISTORY & INFORMATION CENTER
The Edward Lowe Foundation Information Center houses
a historical exhibit of Ed Lowe’s business ventures and initiatives
to support entrepreneurship. The Information Center is located
at the foundation entrance. The building is open to the public
on weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm (except holidays).
Information Center exhibits also highlight Lowe’s efforts to support entrepreneurship, including the formation of the Edward Lowe Foundation. Structured as an operating foundation, the Edward Lowe Foundation conducts research, recognition and educational programs for entrepreneurs and entrepreneur support organizations. In particular, it focuses on second-stage companies—ones that have moved beyond the startup phase and are striving for significant, steady growth
"The Information Center gives visitors a quick look at Ed Lowe’s entrepreneurial journey, with a special focus on his business ventures in or near Cass County," says Heidi Connor, manager of the foundation’s historical collections.
Within the exhibit, visitors will find videos, print materials, historical photographs and artifacts related to Lowe’s life, along with an 8-by-16-foot wall mural by South Bend artist David Blodgett.
