Event Details

The Indiana Historical Society’s Local History Services Department and Indiana Humanities have teamed up to bring you a series of FREE virtual and in-person meetings throughout this year as we begin to prepare for the U.S. Semiquincentennial.

Each virtual brown bag meeting will feature an in-depth discussion on a topic related to the U.S. 250th commemoration, and the in-person regional meetings will include news about planning at the state and national level and the chance to brainstorm local ideas (more details coming soon). Join us in February as we kick off the series!
