.Historic Landmarks in Indiana

Indiana’s story stretches well into history, with significant events happening well before statehood was granted in 1816, and visitors can experience the people and places of the past firsthand at historic sites across the state. Here are just a few highlights:

  • Angel Mounds State Historic Site, Evansville
  • Levi & Catharine Coffin State Historic Site, Fountain City
  • Falls of the Ohio State Park and Lewis & Clark Trail, Clarksville
  • Whitewater Canal State Historic Site & Whitewater Valley Railroad, Metamora
  • George Rogers Clark National Historical Park, Vincennes

The heritage at the Angel Mounds State Historic Site stretches back about 1,000 years. Around 1000 AD, a group of Native Americans began building a town along the Ohio River. The land was chosen because the river offered protection with the river on one side and a slough on the opposing side. The community built large platform mounds, defensive palisades, and numerous dwellings. Angel Mounds is a great example of the Mississippian Culture.

Levi and Catharine Coffin of Newport (now known as Fountain City) were two important abolitionist leaders that played a significant role in the Underground Railroad. As conductors, they helped more than 1,000 slaves reach freedom safely. You can now take a guided tour of the house that protected the freedom seekers!

During the summer of 1803, William Clark received a letter from Meriweather Lewis asking him come along on an expedition to the Louisiana Territory. Lewis and Clark met at Falls of the Ohio later that year to begin their incredible journey out west.  Their meeting is honored at Falls of the Ohio State Park, which is also home to some of the oldest fossil beds in the entire world.

When the Whitewater Canal was built in the 1800s, the engineering miracle turned Indiana into the “Crossroads of America” by forming natural trade routes. After floods and droughts damaged the canal, the White Water Valley Railroad was built. You can experience the history of both in Metamora. Thirty-minute boat tours of the canal are offered on the Ben Franklin III. Pulled by two Belgian Draft horses, it is an experience like no other. Train rides on the Whitewater Valley Railroad are given from April through December.

Colonel George Rogers Clark and his army captured the British Fort Sackville in 1779 in one of the greatest feats of the Revolutionary War. Aided by French residents, the capture of Fort Sackville allowed the United States claim to the frontier. The George Rogers Clark National Historical Park is home to the largest national monument outside of Washington, D.C. Learn More.
