Museum seeking photos artifacts for exhibit

January 17, 2014

PLYMOUTH — The Marshall County Museum is looking for historic pictures of, or memorabilia from local gas stations, drive-in's, watering holes or any automotive-related business or industry in Marshall County from ANY era.

The museum is working on an open house and exhibit in March that tells the story of how the rich history and vast influence of transportation helped shape the development of Marshall County.

A traveling exhibit from the Indiana Historical Society in Indianapolis entitled, "Auto Indiana," will also be featured as part of the exhibit which illuminates ties between the automobile and the expansion of many other economic opportunities for the "Crossroads of America."

Anyone willing to share personal photographs or memorabilia for this special exhibit should call the museum at 574-936-2306, or email questions or pictures to mlangdon@mchistoricalsociety.org.
