Conner Prairie will have a new exhibit next spring, and it could move the history park into the 20th century.

Work is starting at the former site of Liberty Corner on a new exhibit that will be announced in late summer or early fall, spokeswoman Angela Tuell said. She declined to offer any hints, except to say it will represent a different time period. Liberty Corner, which closed June 7, represented 1886, 50 years after Prairietown, Conner Prairie’s flagship exhibit.

The new exhibit could be less antiquated. Asked whether it might be set in the 20th century, Tuell noted that Conner Prairie’s mission is simply to portray Indiana history.

Visitors can still see some favorite features from Liberty Corner. Milk cows and the chicken coop are now near the Golden Eagle Inn at Prairietown. Theater performances are in a tent outside Clowes Common.

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
