The Madison County Historical Society presents "Made In Anderson" Exhibit which will be on display at the History Center, 7 West 11th Street, Anderson, Indiana. The Exhibit Hall is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. This exhibit will be available for visiting and viewing until the end of day on Wednesday, September 30, 2015.
The exhibit is a combination of family histories with the noted products produced and made here in Anderson, Indiana. It is a HUGE collection of material, documents, pictures, artifacts, and manufactured products. This is a large and robust collection featuring original artifacts and documents. To really see this exhibit, you will need to come several times.
The family genealogies are the work of Melody Hull while Bill Knepp put together the industrial artifacts and stories. Mel and Bill will be available to discuss their work on this exhibit. Our special "Thank You" to Mel and Bill for all the work in research, organization, and set-up.
The "Made In Anderson" exhibit will be in conjunction with and run concurrently with the City of Anderson's Sesquicentennial Celebration this summer. You are encouraged to come often to see our display as we celebrate the 150th year of Anderson becoming a city.
The exhibit is free to everyone in the community. It is for you and your family; that's why we do it! For more information and/or questions, please call us at (765) 683-0052 during public hours. Thank you!
