The Hoosier Centennial: A Look Back at the 1916 Celebration
The pageantry and spectacle surrounding Indiana's 1916 statehood centennial is showcased in this exhibit. The statewide centennial celebration in 1916 would prove to have a lasting effect on the state, establishing the first state parks, spurring the production of lavish historical pageants and prompting steps toward an improved highway system.
Ideas for use: Showcase Indiana statehood objects and photos from your collection or items from your town or county’s centennial celebration while this exhibit is on display.
The Hoosier Centennial is a 7-foot tall, freestanding exhibit. It requires at least 150 square feet of floor space.
