One-hour Documentary “Going Rolling” Film About the Town of Rolling Prairie Indiana to Air on South Bend Michiana WNIT PBS-TV, November 19th at 5:00pm CST


Rick-Erwin-MediaRick Erwin Media’S one hour documentary “Going Rolling” is a unique look at the town of Rolling Prairie, it’s history and people that lived, thrived and prospered during the town’s heydays between 1920 and 1960 when this sleepy little town’s main road, U.S. Route Twenty ran right through the downtown district from Chicago to New York City.
