Looking for Displays
It has now been almost 150 years since the United States turned on itself and fought a terrible war. For the next four years we will, at various times, be commemorating the civil war in our Indiana Room display cases. This will require lots of information and numerous objects for display. If you would like to share your items with the public, we would be glad to showcase them. If you have ideas for displays, you are welcome to share them with us. If you are interested, please, contact Steven at 745-2604.
