IHS Announces Special partnership to connect Hoosiers to rare history
The Indiana Historical Society (IHS) has announced a groundbreaking partnership with The Remnant Trust and the Columbia Club — one that brings an incredible collection of rare, printed materials back to Indiana.
The Remnant Trust, a 501(c)3 nonprofit and Indiana-based organization, has recently moved its collection and base of operations to Indianapolis.
IHS will house The Remnant Trust’s collection materials and make them accessible to the public through the IHS archives and library. IHS will also utilize items from The Remnant Trust’s collection for exhibits, programming and other uses — which will, in turn, enrich the use of IHS’s millions of items pertaining to Indiana and the Old Northwest Territory. The first of these offerings will be Documents that Shaped America, which will open at IHS on May 21, 2022.
Founded in 1997, The Remnant Trust is a public educational foundation that shares an actively growing collection of manuscripts, first edition, and early works dealing with the topics of individual liberty and human dignity — with some pieces dating as early as 2500 B.C. The Remnant Trust makes this collection available to colleges, universities and other organizations for use by students, faculty, scholars and the general public.
The Remnant Trust’s offices will be located at the Columbia Club, which will also have a display of materials and host the Trust’s programming.
