Marshall County Museum Hunting for Memorabilia

The Marshall County Museum is developing an open house and exhibit to debut in March, telling the story of how the rich history and vast influence of transportation helped shape the development of Marshall County. To aid in that, the museum is on the hunt for historic pictures and memorabilia from local gas stations, drive-ins, watering holes or any automotive-related business or industry in Marshall County from any era.

A traveling exhibit from the Indiana Historical Society in Indianapolis will also be featured; titled, “Auto Indiana,” the exhibit will be a part of the exhibit, illuminating ties between the automobile and the expansion of many other economic opportunities for the state.

Anyone with photographs or memorabilia that they would like to share should call the museum at (574) 936-2306 or email
