This week Evansville celebrates local history with the debut of the new town walking tour guide! Join the Grove Society and other community groups at Creekside Place on Friday, May 2nd for a reception, short presentation, and a walking tour of historic Evansville. The events kick off at 5:00 p.m. and wrap up between 7 and 7:30. Can’t make it to the walking tour debut? You can pick up one of these brochures at Creekside Place, City Hall, and Eager Free Public Library at any time!
To celebrate the historical celebration happening this week, I’m going to point you to a blog post that was written in 2012 about the various local history resources the library has to offer:

Make sure to check out the digital collection of local photographs that capture many of the ways that Evansville and the surrounding areas have changed – or in some cases, really haven’t! – over the last century.
