Our Featured Exhibit for 2018
CLUES TO OUR PAST
The first exhibit of 2018 at the History Center is titled “Clues to Our Past.” This exhibit is
composed entirely of items donated to the Greentown Historical Society, which help to
interpret the history of eastern Howard County, Indiana. Our collection of objects,
photographs, books, and documents contains a wide variety of information dating back to
The three oldest objects in our collection are a preemption certificate signed by
President Zachary Taylor in 1849, records of the Liberty Township Advisory Board
beginning in 1853, and a handmade textile covering dated 1787-1897. The exhibit
features many different kinds of items about the military service of local
residents, civic organizations, schools, churches, and local businesses.
The exhibit will be open from March 10 through November 18, on Saturdays and Mondays
from 1-4 p.m., Sunday from 2-4 p.m., and by appointment by calling 765-628-3800.

We need your help to identify the individuals in these photos. We are in the middle of a
