The Limestone Heritage Resource Project is an educational outreach initiative to highlight the limestone heritage of the Monroe County region. This project is spearheaded by the Board of Review and current partners, including several groups ranging from the Monroe County History Center to a curriculum-writing class at Ball State University, in order to create a lasting, available resource.

A website will be designed to accommodate teaching and learning resources, as well as links to other historical resources related to limestone heritage.
