Reaching Hoosiers statewide

The Local History Services department is staffed by people who have worked in small organizations and understand the challenges and opportunities local historical organizations face. We assist local historical societies, museums, libraries, archives, genealogy groups and preservation groups to promote Indiana’s history statewide.

We are here to help you make your local history organization better and look forward to working with you. Contact us at (317)234-0170 or

Are you trying to find an answer to a specific local history question? Contact a local history resource or the William H. Smith Memorial Library at the Indiana Historical Society.
