COLUMBUS, Ind. — Norman and Betty Ryle collect Columbus memorabilia. Their collection includes items from the now-closed Irwin Union Bank, where Betty had her first savings account, and from Cosco, where Norman worked for 46 years.
The Ryles were among the passionate collectors, authors of history books, the Bartholomew County Historical Society and other organizations who gathered today at the Columbus branch of the Bartholomew County Public Library. It was the opening day of a two-day event to provide a fun, education-filled experience.
About 330 local students attended the "159 Years of Bartholomew County History" exhibit. The free, public event continues from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
Please read Saturday's edition of The Republic for more information.
