Thanks to Nancy Steele for donating a fabulous collection of men’s hats to the
permanent collection of the Shelby County Historical Society!

Shelby County, Indiana Fairgrounds from the period
of 1949 through 1964.
We want you to saunter, skedaddle, stroll, or walk into GroverMuseum on Feb. 15th from noon until 3 p.m. Stop in the Emporium and have a free root beer float. While you’re in the Emporium, let us snap your picture. Write your memory of the sweetest thing that someone has done for you on Valentine’s Day. There will be posters in the Emporium for you to post your memories. Complete the poem, “Roses are Red, Violets are Blue” on the posters also.
