Agriculture in Montgomery County!

Opening to the public on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at the Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County, this exhibit will cover the history of Agriculture in Montgomery County as well as the state of Agriculture today.

To create this exhibit we need your help. If you have photographs of the Montgomery County Fair or photographs of local people at the Indiana State Fair, the museum would be interested in borrowing them for the exhibit. Also, old farm tools, maps, Almanacs, FFA Jackets and more are needed to complete the visual picture of Montgomery County Agriculture. Any items from the 1979 Farm Progress Show here in the county would be most welcome. Items can be donated to the museum or loaned to the museum for the duration of the exhibit.

The Carnegie Museum is located at:

222 S. Washington Street (US 231)
Crawfordsville, IN 47933
765-362-4618 (Front desk)
765-362-4622 (Curator)

Note: The image of the farm  is the "Benefiel Homestead," owned & improved by John L. Davis, Union Township, Montgomery County, from the Illustrated Atlas of Montgomery County (1878)
