New Pulaski County History Museum to Open Saturday

The new Pulaski County History Museum officially opens its doors Saturday.

It recently moved to the Carriage House at 500 South Monticello Street in Winamac from its former location behind the Pulaski County Public Library. The new facility will be open from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. EST Saturday, with a ribbon cutting set for 5:00 p.m.

The move has been in the works for several years, according to the Pulaski County Historical Society. It was made possible by a grant from the Indiana Historical Society as well as several smaller grants, and the support of Don and Dee Galbreath and Historical Society members. The effort involved upgrading the Carriage House’s climate control and lighting, and installing signage and display structures.

The museum will house a number of rotating exhibits, along with one permanent installation, called “Pulaski County: The Story of Us.” The first group of exhibits will also include “The History of Racing in Pulaski County,” “Remembering Medaryville,” “Early History of Photography,” and “Arrowheads and Other Archeological Finds.”
