Clerk’s Archives: Untapped Treasures

If you are interested in local history or court history, join us tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. in Central Library’s Browning Room B for our Clerk’s Archives: Untapped Treasures program.

The Vanderburgh County Clerk’s Archives is hosting a program titled Clerk’s Archives: Untapped Treasures on Saturday, May 2nd, as part of Preservation Month activities.  We will be displaying some of the historical documents from the Clerk’s Archives collection and sharing some of the many stories those documents contain.  We hold records from court and county history since 1818.

The Vanderburgh County Clerk’s Archives and the EVPL have cosponsored Endangered Heritage, a collections care traveling exhibition from the Hoosier Heritage Alliance. Endangered Heritage gives examples of some of the most common dangers to objects and documents in Hoosier history collections.    As part of the exhibition, the Clerk’s Office Archives is displaying documents relevant to the exhibition and we have joined with our community partner, Willard Library, who has generously allowed us to use pictures from their archives. This exhibition will be on display in the main lobby of Central Library from May 2nd – May 29th, 2015, located at 200 SE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Evansville, Indiana.
