When: Sat., April 2, 2:30-4 p.m. 2016
Inside the archives, which typically are closed to the public, guests will see where and how IHS's 1,700 maps are stored. About 100 of those maps are featured in the Mapping Indiana book by IHS Press, and visitors to the History Center will have a chance to speak to the authors about the selection process.
In addition, the event will be the last chance for guests to see the Mapping Indiana exhibition, featuring 30 of the most dynamic and treasured maps in IHS's own collection, before it closes. The images, some never before displayed in public, include important events and places in the life of Abraham Lincoln, the Frances Slocum Trail and a birds-eye view of Madison, Ind.
Price: $7 for adults, $6.50 for seniors and $5 for kids (ages 5 to 17)
