Summertime Past

July 12, 2010

So many things go on at the History Center during the summer months, including Concerts on the Canal, beautiful outdoor dining at the Stardust Terrace Caf?, a menu of programs and events, and all the hustle and bustle along the canal and downtown streets.

In addition to all the wonderful activities taking place, one little thing visitors should seek out is a changing panel on the Mezzanine Level of Lilly Hall. For those who have not yet been downtown to see the new Indiana Experience, Lilly Hall the centerpiece of the IHS?s incredible

Fox baseball

headquarters building has been transformed into a dynamic exhibition space complete with the stories of the Northwest Territory, Indiana?s immigrant past, various explanations for the term Hoosier,? and a rotating series of panels exploring the various seasons and how Hoosiers experience them.

Come to the History Center and see wonderful images of summertime-past from our collection, little-seen gems of families at the Indiana State Fair, the first swimming pool in Indianapolis, Fourth of July celebrations from as early as 1905, and much, much more. From our collection of more than 1.5 million photographs, we are excited for yet another way to highlight even more treasures in our collection.

Come back in September to see what stories we uncover as we explore autumn in Indiana.
