Pulaski County History Museum’s New Exhibits to Open Next Week

The Pulaski County History Museum’s next round of exhibits will include a couple projects developed in partnership with local students.

Last fall, Winamac High School students researched and created biographies for all 500-plus Pulaski County World War I veterans, to honor the 100th anniversary of the war’s armistice. Now, that research has formed the basis of a “Pulaski County World War I History” exhibit at the museum.

Another exhibit going on display is “Arrowheads and Other Archaeological Finds.” Museum officials say “The Mighty Mastodon” projects recently completed by Eastern Pulaski Elementary School fifth graders have been added to the exhibit.

Other new exhibits include “Welcome to Star City” and the “Tom Jones Photography Exhibit: The Landscape of Pulaski County.” They will join the museum’s permanent exhibit, “Pulaski County: The Story of Us.”

Pulaski County Historical Society members will get to preview the new exhibits this Sunday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. EDT. Then, the public can visit during the museum’s regular hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 4:00 p.m. The Pulaski County History Museum is located in the Carriage House at 500 South Monticello Street in Winamac.
