Shine a light on the fascinating but previously unexplored aspects of Montgomery County history. Meet forgotten artists, authors and athletes. Revisit courtroom drama and sensational crimes, like the attempted robbery of Waveland State Bank that was thwarted by vigilantes. Peruse A.D. Willis’s spirit photography gallery on Crawfordsville’s Main Street before studying the oddities at Commodore Alfred Lookabill’s Gourd Museum. Look agog as Lana Turner stops by for a week and risk admonishment—or worse—from aggressive temperance champion Carrie Nation at the July 4 festival in 1901. And while you’re here, gain some trivia: did you know that the highest-altitude balloon flight and the first airmail are connected to Montgomery County?
