WE ARE ON CALL WITH HISTORY STORIES AND TALES
Rev Up Your Next Meeting or Event with Something New
The Madison County Historical Society speakers and presenters can give your next event the punch, verve, and energy it deserves!!! Our speakers are knowledgeable, interesting and educational. They are eager to promote a better understanding and appreciation of the social and cultural history of Madison County. Much of the history of our county and state can only be found through the experiences, research and personal knowledge of people involved in the industry, businesses and life events. The communities continuing historical and cultural education is of paramount importance to us and is a part of our mission.
History, historical places and pioneer remembrances can invoke a special feeling of curiosity, surprise, wonder and "how did they do that?" Have you ever wondered who walked down that path and trail you now call a road? Who made that flint you found one day along that creek? What of that old building out back - why did Grandpa build it? Questions and thoughts such as these can appear and can only be answered when we ask them. You are participating in history this very moment! Our greatest advantage now is that we have the information about this county and state to keep us all informed, educated, inspired and an appreciation for those who went before us. Do yourself and your group a favor by enlisting an MCHS speaker to impart his/her knowledge and understanding of the historical events, lives, culture and accomplishments of past generations.
Please take the time to peruse the topics and subjects presented here. Then, choose a topic you like and call us to schedule your event. All programs range from 30 to 60 minutes in length. You may call us at (765) 683-0052 for booking arrangements anytime during our public hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
If you would like to meet with a presenter with a special subject or topic for your group, please feel free to come to our offices at the History Center, 15 West 11th Street, Anderson, Indiana during our public hours. A donation would be appreciated for our speaker's appearance but is not required.
