The Brown County Historical Society's Archives is located just north of Nashville, Indiana on S. R. 135. Our Archive houses anything to do with Brown County History - from genealogy to Circuit Court records to old newspapers to different topics on the county's history since its founding in 1837. For those that want to visit the Archive to do research we are open Tuesdays from noon til 3:00 p.m. If you are traveling from out of state it is best to call before coming. Our bigest topic for research so far as been genealogy. We get occasional requests to research house history, veterans organizations, and old photos. We should have something on about any Brown county topic for the casual researcher to the more experienced.
Thank you for looking over the prototype of the new Historical Society Website. As with all things...new, there are sure to be things that need to be changed, fixed, redone, deleted, and otherwise tweaked :)
Please let me know in very specific detail, what you want editted. Slideshows, photos, etc are easy to fix if I have the photos to upload.
The blog is a place where Ivan can post articles; Rhonda can feature articles and photos from the archives; Jeanette can talk about genealogy; Pete can talk about programs; Julia can write about pioneer village, history center, etc.... you get the picture
