Indiana Historical Society

Indiana Historical Society

This organization encourges both members and visitors to utilize the resources and services provided by the society. IHS believes that knowledge of the past encourages responsible citizenship, education, and inspiration for discovery. The main exhibit displayed in the Lanham Gallery is a walk through the life of Abraham Lincoln. The local history services department provides training, advice, communication channels, and other forms of assistance designed to address the needs of Indiana's historical societies, local archives, and museums.
