Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Legacy Projects > Fountain County 'Put' Em on the Map Mural Conservation and Promotion Project Fountain County 'Put' Em on the Map Mural Conservation and Promotion Project

The Fountain County courthouse murals painted in 1937-39 by local artists are a treasure to our country, featuring expansion of the United States westward, the settlement of the Indiana territory, and the Wabash Valley, as well as providing a record of the history and settlement of Fountain County. Painted in the al fresco method, the 2,500’ of murals have deteriorated due to age, climate and aging infrastructure of the courthouse over the past 77 years. Professional conservation is now needed to assure their existence as a legacy for future generations. The total cost of the project is $227,000. After conservation, promotional materials will be developed to “Put ‘em on the map” of places to visit in Indiana.
