Discovering treasures

Do you enjoy immersing yourself in history? Do you love looking at old photographs? When you drive, do you enjoy getting away from the main highway and investigating old country roads? Do you visit antique shops hoping to find a treasure? You aren’t alone! And thanks to Wabash Valley Visions & Voices you can enjoy history from the comfort of your home!

Thirty-five organizations in the Wabash Valley are partners in this digital memory project. Open up the collections of any of the partners and you’ll be surprised at what you’ll discover. Take this 1920 Clinton Directory published by Clark-Elwell Co. of Champaign, Ill. What a treasure! Not only is it a directory of residents, but also businesses, churches, organizations and local governmental entities.
