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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, all Local History Services in-person workshops and meetings are postponed through 2020, but we have a full slate of live webinars and virtual meetings scheduled for this fall. Staff are working remotely and are available via email. Find information about upcoming Zoom meetings and virtual workshops.
