Crawfordsville c. 1920

You may recognize East Main Street, even though it is from the Crawfordsville of almost 100 years ago! We have recently come across an interesting booklet in our archives and have placed it in our image database. You can view several scenes from this booklet named "Crawfordsviille, Ind,. and Wabash College" (.pdf).

This 14-page booklet of scenes (photo-gravures) from Crawfordsville and Wabash College show styles in clothing and automobiles that suggest c. 1920 as a date. Scenes include: east Main Street, Crawfordsville High School, Ben Hur office building, Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA), Masonic Temple, Mills Place, Wabash College campus (Center Hall), Wabash College campus (from Center Hall looking north to South Hall), Yandes Library, Gymnasium, Peck Scientific Hall, Lew Wallace Library and monument, Henry Lane Place, and the Country Club.
