Edgar County Genealogical Society announces its March 4 program, The Amazing Interurban, presented by Jeff Koehler at 7pm in the Historical Museum Annex.
Koehler’s presentation will cover the history of the interurban from its beginnings in Brazil, Indiana in 1893 to the last run from Indianapolis to Terre Haute in 1940. It ran between Terre Haute and Paris from 1903 to 1932. Many innovations in transportation and freight delivery resulted from the interurban’s development and operation.
Jeff Koehler is a lifelong resident of Clay County, Indiana and has been the county historian for almost 20 years. He encourages program attendees to bring any pictures, newspaper articles, and other items related to the interurban.
A brief ECGS business meeting will follow.
