I have created this web site in conjunction with the Vanderburgh County Historical Society's presentation by John Story and Terry Hughes at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Sciences on September 1, 2005. Updates happen from time to time.

My next presentation at Willard is October, 17, 2012 at 6:00 PM. I will be completing my previous presentation, this time on neighborhood theaters of the Golden Age.
