Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Legacy Projects > Parke County Giant Map & Timeline Parke County Giant Map & Timeline

Our interactive giant (10’ x 10’) map and timeline (10’ x 12’) will help residents learn in a big way! Both will be used by schools, classrooms and organizations during the 2016 bicentennial celebration and beyond, displaying geographic and historical information about our state, country, world, and county. The map and timeline will become a resource to build a more literate community in terms of the bicentennial, the state, geography, economics, history, civics, social studies/sciences, landscape, peoples, landmarks, and more. Both will also be available online.
