Every photograph in the collection of the Vigo County Historical Museum tells a unique story. Some of which are well known, some well researched by the great “History Makers” of the past, and some are just a mystery waiting to be solved. This week’s Historical Treasure is one of the many photos from the museum archives that came with no background story what-so-ever. The story begins with the Madison County Historical Society, who seeing it fit to return the photo to its place of origin, arranged to have it delivered to the Vigo County History Center.
