Auto Indiana

A special exhibit celebrating Indiana’s love of cars

Our first traveling exhibit -Auto Indiana explores the mark Indiana’s inventors, innovators and automakers left on the industry and vice versa. RUNS THROUGH NOV. 26

Corydon, Ind.-The Harrison County Discovery Center will host Auto Indiana, one of the Indiana Historical Society’s (HIS’s) traveling exhibits, from October 18 through November 26, 2017. The exhibit, which takes visitors on a ride through Indiana’s rich automotive past, will be on display at the Harrison County Discovery Center, located at 233 North Capitol Avenue, Corydon, Indiana.

Auto Indiana explores the mark Indiana’s inventors and innovators such as Elwood Haynes and Ralph Teetor and automakers such as Studebaker and Duesenberg left on the industry-and vice versa.

The exhibit also illuminates ties between the automobiles and the development of many other economic opportunities for the “Crossroads of America,” such as the iron, steel and glass businesses. In addition, it explores how the automobile became part of the American Dream and popular culture, from movies to making personal memories.

Finally, the exhibit allows guests to gaze down the road ahead for Hoosiers, from the environmental impact of automobiles to a look at manufacturing today. Auto Indiana is made possible by Kroger.
