Located at the point on historic South Sixth Street, nestled in the old National Guard Armory just a few blocks from the heart of downtown Indiana, The Historical Society’s complex contains two buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has ties to the earliest days of the County’s existence.
Our library offers various resources for genealogical and historical research of Indiana County. It is open to the public during business hours - Tuesday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There is a library fee of $5.00 for non-members and is is free to use for our members.
The first floor of the Armory offers a history of Indiana County from the time when Indiana County was wilderness through the present day. Do not forget to go upstairs to see the military exhibit, dedicated to all the men and women who have fought in
our armed forces from the French and Indian War through the present day. The Museum is free to tour; however, we do accept donations.
Located across the parking lot is the Silas M. Clark House. The House features two restored rooms and is available for guided tours by appointment. Guided tours are $10 per person, $7 for members, tours are limited to 10 people per tour.
We encourage group tours of school groups, clubs, and bus tours. We do ask that tours with over 10 people be scheduled ahead of time and can be customized to the needs of the group. Contact the Society today to set up and schedule your group tour.
