Bicentennial train to make a stop in Columbus


Follow The Republic:


A new traveling exhibit will make its first stop by rail in Columbus next month leading up to Indiana's 200th birthday in 2016.

The Indiana Historical Society's Indiana Bicentennial Train will stop at the Bartholomew County Fairgrounds from Sept. 18 through 20.

Lynn Lucas, Columbus Area Visitors Center executive director, said the train visit will be great for residents young and old to learn about Indiana's history.

"Nationally, we see this trend of several generations doing things together. This is a wonderful example of a grandfather taking his grandchildren or mom and dad taking the kids," she said. "Even if you’re not from Indiana, and you’re living in the area, why not teach your kids about the area?"
