As we approach Indiana’s 200th birthday of statehood in 2016 there will be a growing interest in the Indiana story. Such a significant anniversary affords a useful opportunity to review where we have been, appraise our present position, and plan our future development. Hoosiers have enjoyed a two centuries of democratic self-government. Only a small percentage of the world’s population can claim as much. With the example of our ancestors to inspire us we should begin our second 200 years with the determination to build an even better state with a greater degree of opportunity and freedom for all.

These Bicentennial Resources aim to honor our state’s 200 years of history. These links offers the reader a guide to our state. It offers information about our history, government, our emblems and symbols, and historic sites throughout the state, museums and much more. It is our hope that the reader will find hours of enjoyment revisiting Hoosier History.
