CLOSED UNTIL FEBRUARY 2021
Due to Covid-19, we have made the difficult decision to close the museum until February, 2021. We are available for research by appointment only. Please call 812-372-3541 to schedule.
Come see the holiday cheer outside!
While we are not able to host our Christmas Trees Through Time exhibit inside this year, we are bringing the holiday cheer outside! We hope you will stroll the grounds or drive by to see the festive trees and decorations we want to share with the community. There will also be a BCHS display in the window at Gramz Bakery on Washington Street for all to enjoy. On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff – Happy Holidays!
