“History is not just something that happened long ago and far away. History happens to all of us all the time. Local history brings history home, it touches your life, the life of your family, your neighborhood, your community.” -Thomas J. Noel, Denver author and historian

The Vanderburgh County Clerk’s Office serves as the official record keeper of the courts. The mission of the Records and Archives Section is to collect, maintain, preserve, arrange, describe, and make publically available the records generated by the Vanderburgh County Courts and all other records that come into its care.

This blog exists for three primary reasons: 1) to make local residents aware of the valuable historical resources available to them, 2) to explore efforts to improve access to and usage of local records, and 3) to provide an informal outlet to engage with individuals and institutions that have similar interests not only in the preservation of Vanderburgh County history, but in the preservation of all local history.
