Indiana Historical Society exhibit features 110 years of UIndy history

The history of the University of Indianapolis is now a part of Destination Indiana, an interactive visitor experience at the Indiana Historical Society’s downtown headquarters. The Destination Indiana exhibition features an array of touchscreens that allow visitors to explore points of interest around the state and take self-guided journeys through time with historic photos, documents, and accompanying text. The UIndy story, developed by the University’s Communications & Marketing team with the Frederick D. Hill Archives, can be found through a name-search function. The installation includes stories from each of Indiana’s 92 counties, with information about major industries, ethnic groups, social trends, geographic features, everyday life, and major historical events, such as Hoosiers’ involvement in the Civil War. The Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center is located on the Central Canal at 450 W. Ohio St. Its key exhibits are open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Admission ranges from $7 for adults to free for children 4 and younger.
