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.
