Local History at your Fingertips

Several years ago, we created cell phone tours for our historic attractions and points of interest. These audio tour recordings to provide interpretation at attractions after hours or for anyone unable to visit in person but seeking more information.  Descriptions for fifteen of our local attractions can be accessed by dialing 812-703-4004 or visit our web app.

Now, a digital tour of some well-known historic attractions and lesser-known historic attractions is available! Local historian Norbert Brown with the Knox County Public Library has created an in-depth digital tour of Vincennes as part of the Discover Indiana project.  Brown’s Unexpected Vincennes provides a valuable tool in discovering little-known facts about our city and its past.  Find out more for yourself by visiting the online tour here.   *Discover Indiana is a project of the Public History Program at IUPUI, the Indiana Department of Natural Department of Natural Resources and Archaeology and the Indiana Historical Society. 

Take a look and discover your local history!
