Indiana Historical Society

>> Located downtown off Ohio St. next to the canal, the Indiana Historical Society offers an exciting view of the history of Indiana and the famous people from here. The society’s current exhibit,  called “You Are There,” allows you to personally step into several pictures. Visitors can experience the lives of Indiana residents during times such as The Great Flood of 1913 and walk in the shoes of 1939 African American doctor Harvey Middleton. They can sit down and take a portrait in a Victorian photo studio as if living in 1904. The Historical Society also has a History Lab where visitors can learn the process of preserving what is valuable to Hoosier history. I encourage you to visit the Indiana Historical Society. The experience was enjoyable for me and is not just for tourists visiting Indiana for the first time. Plus, unlike most downtown attractions, the Indiana Historical Society offers free parking with the purchase of admission or something from the gift shop.
