Suzy Quick has been appointed the new county historian in Vigo County. Quick did not entirely grow up in her hometown of Terre Haute. Most of her childhood years of traveling to various cities throughout the United States granted her the opportunity of a diverse childhood experience. She is a 1995 graduate of Terre Haute South Vigo High School.
In 2009, Quick settled back in Terre Haute and devoted herself to family and community engagement. Her love for history, writing and storytelling eventually led to her current position as curator of the Vigo County History Center. In her role with the History Center, she is a valued source for researching local history and has worked to develop many inspiring exhibits and programs.
Quick’s historical writings often appear in the Terre Haute Tribune Star and other local publications. She also serves as secretary on the board of the 12 Points Revitalization, a nonprofit organization created to inspire economic development in a historic district of Terre Haute. In addition to her passion for history, Suzy enjoys spending time with her family, writing, photography and traditional archery.
The Indiana Historical Society and the Indiana Historical Bureau thank all Indiana county historians for their service and dedication to local history. In 1981, through an effort to improve the historical communication network in the state, the Indiana Historical Society and the Indiana Historical Bureau established the Indiana County Historian Program.
County historians serve as volunteers appointed by the Indiana Historical Society and Indiana Historical Bureau to promote local history in their counties, connect individuals and groups with history resources, promote collaboration between local history organizations and maintain connections with the Indiana Historical Society and Indiana Historical Bureau.
