Indiana Historical Society
Memorial Day is traditionally seen as the launchpad for summer. But take time today to remember the real meaning of this holiday.
A new display highlighting Indiana's contributions to the Civil War effort and a presentation by a travel author will highlight Memorial Day weekend events sponsored by the South Shore Civil War Memorial Trail.
LAKE STATION | The Lake Station Historical Museum, 2400 Central Ave., is hosting a traveling exhibit from the Indiana Historical Society.
VALPARAISO | Thousands are expected to flock to the city's transit oriented district in October for the arrival of a train, but it won't be the commuter train city officials have long sought.
PORTAGE | With a few strokes of her brush, muralist Theresa Channell-Moore worked to bring to life an exhibit at the Portage Community Historical Society's Alton Goin Museum.
HAMMOND | An Indiana Historical Society exhibit charting the evolving principles of freedom in America will be a part of a Northwest Indiana Civil War exhibition set for April at the Indiana Welcome Center.
CROWN POINT | The unlikely pair of a Crown Point artist and excavator have teamed up to produce one of the major displays for a special region Civil War historical exhibition opening in April.
In the confusion, chaos and carnage often resulting from close-quarters Civil War combat, hundreds of region men relied on their regimental flags to show them where to rally.
Indiana University Northwest Professor Emeritus of History James B. Lane, Ph.D., was awarded the Indiana Historical Society’s Dorothy Riker Hoosier Historian Award earlier this month.
MERRILLVILLE | With 20 new veterans' headstones installed and 41 secured from the federal government, a region Civil War historical preservation group is looking to thank the public and asking for more help.
