Award-Winning Local History Tour
Join IHS Membership and Local History Services staff for our first Annual Award-Winning Local History Tour. This exciting daytrip highlights outstanding historical sites taking us to Kokomo's Seiberling Mansion, home of the Howard County Historical Society, and Delphi's Wabash and Erie Canal Center, all recognized for their great work and significance to Indiana's history.
Our trip begins with a guided, room-by-room tour of the Seiberling Mansion, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1889 by Monroe Seiberling, the mansion has been through several transitions before the Howard County Historical Society moved there in 1972. The tour includes all three floors and some behind-the-scenes opportunities not typically offered to the public.
Our next stop takes us to the Wabash and Erie Canal Conference and Interpretive Center. Erected in 2003 by a group of dedicated volunteers, this center offers much to see and enjoy from an interpretive center to a pioneer village to canal boat tours.
