The Friends of Big Bone (FOBB) group is having a special celebration on Sat., July 18 for the 260th anniversary of Mary Draper Ingles historic escape from her Shawnee captors.  Festivities will start at 10:00am on the Big Bone Lick State Park grounds and will conclude with a picnic supper & concert at a residence nearby.  The day events are free, but there is a charge for the picnic supper/concert.  Proceeds from this will go to FOBB's efforts to improve the visitor center at the park. 

 

They've asked us to publicize this event, but it will be over before the next issue of CCHN, so we've included the website to get signed up for the picnic supper & concert here:

Sounds like a great day with proceeds going to a worthy cause!

The Veterans Data Project

One of the most successful projects of the historical society has been the collection of information on Campbell County Veterans. With forms continuing to pour in, the project has already produced dozens of binders filled with data on veterans from every war. Many people have attached copies of important documents, pictures and other information relating to the veteran's service. Several other historical societies are considering duplicating the project in their area.

If you or your ancestor served in the military and also lived one or more years in Campbell County, we would like to add your information to our list of honored veterans. Please use the link below to access the Veterans form.
