How well do you know Indiana and the Region?

You’ll find out and learn a lot with our special history section coming in Wednesday’s Times.

Last February, during the Indiana bicentennial, we published a well-received section of historic front pages.

This year, coming off that great year for the state, we’ll publish a section filled with history lessons to be shared with everyone in your family.

You’ll be challenged by pages that test your knowledge of Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties.

You’ll also be challenged by hundreds of Indiana history questions contributed by the Indiana Historical Society. You might have tried a few of these last year on Page 2 as part of our daily bicentennial feature, but you’ll find all of them in Wednesday’s section.

We’ll also put a spotlight on dozens of famous Hoosiers and offer news to know about many aspects of the state.

We packed a lot onto during the bicentennial year, adding your photo galleries as well as photos and stories from our archives. That site continues to grow, and we welcome you to visit and share it moving forward.

Enjoy Wednesday’s section with your family.
