Through the cooperative efforts of the Kosciusko County Historical Society, city of Warsaw and Warsaw Community Schools, City Hall will host Auto Indiana, one of the Indiana Historical Society’s traveling exhibits, today, Sept. 19, through early October.

Auto Indiana was first on display at the Back to the Day 2022, a one day learning event on Sept. 9. Approximately 600 WCS fourth-graders jump-started the Indiana social studies curriculum with a one-day, hands-on learning event, according to a news release provided by WCS.

The Auto Indiana exhibit, which takes visitors on a ride through Indiana's automotive past, will be on display at the exhibition and gallery area of City Hall, at 102 S. Buffalo St., Warsaw.

Auto Indiana explores the mark Indiana's inventors and innovators, such as Elwood Haynes and Ralph Teetor and automakers such as Studebaker and Duesenberg, left on the industry — and vice versa.

The exhibit also illuminates ties between the automobiles and the development of many other economic opportunities for the "Crossroads of America," such as the iron, steel and glass businesses. In addition, it explores how the automobile became part of the American Dream and popular culture, from movies to making personal memories.

Finally, the exhibit allows guests to gaze down the road ahead for Hoosiers, from the environmental impact of automobiles to a look at manufacturing today.

Auto Indiana is made possible by Kroger.
