North Manchester Historical Society President Mary Chrastil displays a sign the Center for History recently received that documents the Center’s designation as an endorsed project of the 2016 Indiana State Bicentennial. The endorsed project is a video with the working title North Manchester Video History, Yesterday and Today. The video includes the early history of North Manchester and interviews with current residents about the state of arts and humanities, education, business and agriculture, civic organizations and hopes for the future. The project will also create hours of video history archives for future research.
The sign reads: North Manchester History Center, Celebrating 200 Years of Indiana Statehood with an Official Bicentennial Project, 1816 – 2016.
