Museum ag equipment exhibit to end after fair
For more than a year now the Putnam County Museum has been host to the bicentennial exhibit “It’s Always Been About the Land.” However, time is running out to enjoy seeing these timeless pieces of historical agricultural equipment in the museum.
Once the Putnam County Fair is over at the end of the month, the items will start to be returned to their owners as well as some being returned to the pioneer museum at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
The Putnam County Museum has partnered with the Purdue Agricultural Alumni Association as well as the Indiana State Fairgrounds on the project on which the late Ron Price worked so hard to obtain the loan of these interesting utilitarian artifacts currently on display at the museum.
The Putnam County Museum has been fortunate to have such items on exhibit during Indiana’s bicentennial year of 2016, and has taken great pride in showcasing the pieces to illustrate how in Indiana, in essence, it has “Always Been About the Land.”
Anyone who has questions may call 653-8419, or stop in at the Putnam County Museum at 1105 N. Jackson St., Greencastle, from 1-4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday or on Saturdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. to see the exhibit before it’s too late.
