Vigo County Timeline of History
Coverage of historical information from Vigo County Indiana begins with 1800 and continues to the present. Presently, coverage is most complete for businesses, churches, and organizations; however, the contents will be continually expanded and updated as additional information becomes available. Subject indexes are arranged alphabetically.
The compilation of this information is coordinated by Dorothy Weinz Jerse, a local historian. This project would not have been possible without the help and cooperation of the many businesses, organizations, churches, educational institutions, and dedicated individuals of Vigo County.
