We have a lot of great programming planned for our 2013 season, and a lot of what we are offering has never been done here before! Some dates are still being finalized, but here’s a little preview of what you can look forward to:
April 6 is Civil War Trust Park Day – Come to the Study grounds to help Grounds Manager Deb King clean up and do general maintenance projects. This is a great chance to do some one-time volunteering here at the Study!
April 13 our Associate Director/Collections Amanda McGuire is giving a Behind the Scenes Tour. You can view the Study basement, learn what is in the tower, and view our Carriage House storage vault. The tour is $5 (free to members) and requires an RSVP. Email Amanda McGuire or call the museum at 765-362-5769.
April 27-28 is our twice a year “History Beneath Us” archaeological program. University of Indianapolis archaeologists will be excavating the reflecting pool and the structure site to the west of the Carriage House. The archaeologists will return again in September.
May 9 is our “Cemeteries” Genealogy Lecture.
June 2 is our special Lew Wallace Study Preservation Society Membership Thank-You. All members of the LWSPS are invited. Membership starts at only $25 – see our Join & Support page for more details.
June 20 we will have the second of our Genealogy Lecture series. This one will focus on the recently released 1940 Census records and how to access and use them to research your family history.
June 25-26 is our ArchiCamp for youth.
In July we have a Genealogy Lecture about the Wallace Family, as well as a Garden Tour led by Grounds Manager Deb King on July 14.
Our big August event is the TASTE! of Montgomery County on Saturday, August 24. Our headlining musical act is Michael Kelsey. Stay tuned for more music information!
We have also created a 2013 Events Flyer in a printable PDF for you to download.
