During the hospital's 100 year celebration in 1990 we established our own museum bringing artifacts, antiques and records together of our rich history. The museum is still in existence today and is located in one of the wings connected to the Administration building. The location of the museum provides participants to view how life was like for our patients and staff in one of our original structures. Group tours of the museum are available by contacting our Community Relations Department, Kristie Vail (765) 935-9202 or at
