The Photography of Ben Winans
In 1902 photographer Ben Winans purchased a state-of-the-art camera and began documenting life in tiny Brookville, Indiana. For twenty-four years he photographed the people, places, and events that breathed life into this southeastern Indiana town. The 172-page book, written by Don Dunaway, features more than one hundred of Winans's black-and-white photographs of townsfolk at work and play, surrounding scenery, and architecture of the small river town.

Remembrance, Faith & Fancy
In the early 1850s Henry Cross, a stone carver, fashioned three road-marker heads in Brown County, Indiana. The markers, one of which survives today on maps as Stone Head, were the first outdoor public sculptures in the Hoosier State. Through the years, counties throughout the state have continued to add to Cross's legacy, dotting the landscape with sculptures both realistic and fanciful. The wealth of outdoor public sculpture in Indiana is highlighted in an authoritative examination of the art by noted public historian Glory-June Greiff. Remembrance, Faith, & Fancy: Outdoor Public Sculpture in Indiana examines the more than 1,500 pieces of outdoor sculpture through such broad categories as commemorative, religious, aesthetic, whimsical, and abstract/contemporary. In addition, the book includes a county-by-county accounting of the location of each outdoor sculpture and approximately 200 photographs. In addition to describing each outdoor sculpture and its location, the book offers biographical details on a large number of the artists responsible for crafting the artwork. "My purpose," notes Greiff, "is to open the public's eyes to the amazing and growing collection of public sculptures in Indiana-for I firmly believe that simply seeing more art helps to educate the viewer as well as the reader to understand at least some of the many reasons why sculpture is erected and to encourage observers to become more discerning." Greiff's work also calls attention to the many outdoor public sculptures that have been neglected, poorly maintained, or are located in the wrong place, either for conservation or aesthetic reasons. During her years of work, Greiff discovered that some documented pieces had been stolen or destroyed, while others were moved into storage with no definite plans for their use.

From the first page: “At one time the National Road in Indiana, or what is now U.S. Highway 40, was the major thoroughfare across the state. Towns and businesses developed along the road as people moved west.”

“This curriculum packet offers a look at the role the National Road played in Indiana’s past and highlights important people and places vital to the road’s history. Lessons will assist you in meeting the fourth grade social studies standards but can also be adapted for use at other grade levels. Throughout the lessons, primary source materials and documents will be used. It is our hope that the history of the National Road as presented here will enrich your students’ understanding of this corridor of Indiana’s past and inspire them to expand their understanding of Indiana’s larger role in history.”
