Museum Exhibits

Bartholomew County Historical Society is proud to host two permanent exhibits that share the history and heritage of Bartholomew County. Most recently we installed the Early Industrialists exhibit. Learn how early inventors and creatives worked together to strengthen their companies while developing relationships with fellow entrepreneurs. There are fascinating stories of grit, willpower and commitment, showing how the Columbus Way has been in existence for over 100 years.

Location and Parking

Free parking for visitors is located behind the Historical Society, on the north side the building.

FUN FOOTNOTES IN COUNTY HISTORY : WASHINGTON STREET, AT NIGHT

Parking back in the day on Washington Street, just one block west of the Historical Society, was much like it still is today and it was always busy, same as it remains today! One things has changed though, notice that it was one-way traffic.
