When you visit the Indiana State Fair, hop on board the Indiana History Train to take in a new exhibit celebrating Hoosier inventions and innovations. Made in Indiana, explores products with roots in our state – from automobiles to medical innovations, musical instruments, agricultural equipment and more. Each story highlights one of the invention process steps: define a problem, do research, make a prototype, file a patent, and market the invention.
Presented by Indiana Historical Society in partnership with the Indiana State Fair Commission and supported in part by Allison Transmission, Bass Farms, Delta Faucet Company, Indiana Rail Road Company, Jack’s Donuts, Lewis Bakeries/Bunny Bread, N.K. Hurst Company, and Weaver Popcorn.
