2006 Present Indiana Projects• July 10, 2007 Share:
Thousands to millions of people have visited Parke County’s famed Covered Bridge Festival. But do you know the history of how the covered bridge served its era and evolved into a romantic symbol of times past?
If you’re a Hoosier you traveled over the Wabash River or sung about it in one of the state’s great songs. The river has had a significant historical, biological and human impact on the Hoosier state.
Indiana has a diverse history and culture that many have not yet come to appreciate. Present Indiana is one step in a three-part effort to familiarize Wabash faculty, staff, and students with the state.
Each summer up to 10 Wabash students are selected for an 8-week summer internship to study some area of Hoosier history or culture. The students prepare a presentation they can make to various groups during the school year.
