Take a virtually guided tour of the Elkhart County Historical Museum

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. -- The Elkhart County Historical Museum will host a virtually guided tour of its "Crossroads of Elkhart County: Claiming the Land" exhibit.

This exhibit covers the time in history when the Miami and Potawatomi encountered European groups and concludes with early American settlement as well as the formation of Elkhart County.

History that transpired within and between the Native, French, British and American communities will also be showcased.

“Over the past few months, we have done virtual tours the two other Crossroads of Elkhart County exhibits: Forging a Path and Making a Place. With the tour on May 20, we will complete the virtual presentation of the museum’s main exhibits and the comprehensive history of Elkhart County,” said Patrick McGuire, Curator of Education.

“The museum also believes virtual tours is one of the best ways to achieve our mission and reaching people where they are. With the pandemic, out of necessity, we had to do our programming virtually, but it opened our eyes to the opportunity we had to reach people in their homes,” McGuire added.

The free tour will be streamed on Facebook Live through the museum’s Facebook page on May 20 at 7 p.m.
