Indiana Lore

Larger-than-life legends and folklore of the Hoosier state are explored in this exhibit, shown in conjunction with the Indiana Historical Society. Through historic photos and original art by the Braintwins, Indiana Lore traces the roots of Indiana’s tall tales, from the green-eyed ghost of a bulldog guarding a grave at Terre Haute’s Highland Lawn Cemetery to the Grey Lady who lurks in the children’s book section of Evansville’s Willard Library. These mysterious and mesmerizing campfire stories spark our imaginations and illuminate another side of Hoosier history. Featured are stories from the St. Joseph River Valley, like that of Hazel McNalley, accused of murdering her children, who she claimed had been only dolls. As you peruse the exhibit, see if you can tell truth from myth, and learn how legends and lore can help us understand the world around us.
