Library sponsoring Elements of Indiana tour

On September 8 - 11, join the LaGrange County Library on a tour of Southern Indiana, and visit some of the most famous and most important elements of our state.

 Depart & Return from  LaGrange, Kendallville, or Fort Wayne. Registration deadline for the tour is August 8.

The tour will stop at:

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway--and take a lap around the track!

Historic New Harmony, where 19th century idealists tried--twice!--to build Utopia.

The dazzling West Baden Springs Hotel.

The Gus Grissom Memorial, honoring one of the original Mercury astronauts.

A limestone quarry and mill, an element central to Indiana’s history.
