Have you seen this marker?
IHB staff want to extend thanks to all the people who visited us at the Indiana State Fair and helped restore the "Old Northside" State Historical Marker. Many hands make light work, and it was great to meet so many people from around the state who love their history.
The marker was reinstalled at 12th St. and Delaware St. in Indianapolis this week, so stop by and see your handiwork in context!
