2006 Present Indiana Projects• July 10, 2007
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.
