    In the first part of the 20th century the southwest quadrant of Sturgis, later known as Dog Town, was mostly farmland or open prairie (hence the name Prairie Street). The rest of Sturgis was already a bustling place, and by 1916 the downtown area had electric streetlights. Not so in Dog Town. Here the streets weren't paved until the 1950s, the homes had no running water, and many of the floors were dirt. It was a neighborhood of the working poor, where everyone worked together to have each other's backs. Children played outdoors year round and neighbors weren't shy about correcting another's child. The people there practiced the principle "it takes a neighborhood to raise a child." It was in this neighborhood, Dog Town, where fond memories developed. The uplifting documentary film Dog Town premieres Friday, May 31st, at 7 pm at the Sturges-Young Civic Center & Auditorium. Tickets are $10 and are available now at the Depot Museum, Sturgis Area Chamber of Commerce, York Mercantile, and Willer's Shoes. Dog Town in sponsored by the Sturgis Historical Society, City of Sturgis, and the Newell A. and Grace A. Franks Fund, a fund within the Sturgis Area Community Foundation.
