The program had its premiere on Dec. 2 and was repeated Dec. 4 and 6. Due to such positive audience response, the public television station has added a fourth showing of the program in one of its viewer choice slots this weekend.
"Our Town: Greencastle, Indiana" is the fourth community to be profiled in WTIU's ongoing series putting the spotlight on towns and cities in southern and central Indiana. As with the other programs, the Greencastle show started with a community meeting to get input from citizens about what makes their town special.
The program includes segments on the history, economy, folklore and people of Greencastle. Viewers will learn about the Heritage Wall, the impact of IBM leaving the community, DePauw University, the national road, the fire that burned most of the town in 1874 and the John Dillinger bank robbery in 1933.
