As Indiana?s oldest town, Vincennes has a richly textured and multifaceted history. Established in 1732 as a military and fur-trading post, it grew to become the cultural, political, and educational center of the Indiana Territory in the early 1800s. Illustrated with over two hundred picture postcards and rare photographs, Vincennes offers a unique view of life in this historic community on the banks of the Wabash River. This unprecedented collection creates a retrospective of Vincennes?s history from the early 1900s through the 1960s. Vincennes serves as a kind of time machine for its readers, enabling them to experience the sights and structures of yesteryear. The book?s lively commentary combines the images with colorful anecdotes, making this book both entertaining and educational. From photographs documenting its landscape?picturesque views of downtown and shots of Fort Knox and the Clark Memorial?to evocative portraits of townspeople at work and play?at Beesley Grocery or the Pantheon Theatre?this fascinating collection will give older readers a chance to walk Vincennes?s streets again, and younger readers a chance to appreciate their rich heritage.
