I encourage you to apply for an Indiana state historical marker. There are lots of interesting and important events, places, people, and things which have not been marked yet. They're waiting for you to step forward and start the project. If you wish to discuss an idea with someone who has gone through the process, e-mail me. If you wish to contact the I. H. B. marker program manager, e-mail her. She and her staff are a helpful and friendly bunch.
Big, official state markers are not the only route. Why not pursue your own local marker program? There are various possible materials that others have used with success, from home-made wooden signs to etched plastic or aluminum to concrete.

This page developed 25th January, 2000.  Last updated 27th October, 2013. After my reasons for creating this page dissolved a decade ago, I've pretty well ignored it (after 30 Sept., 2002). I've had a dozen e-mail addresses over the years. Some services disappeared. Some e-addresses I've simply ignored. I've now changed them here to one I actually currently check. Something about the Historians Club was causing this index-page to be unvisitable, for some reason. I have now finally gotten around to simply removing the links to that club. Let's see if that change has brought this web-page back from the dead. If so, maybe maybe I'll eventually get around to updating it and making some fun use of it once again, and maybe I'll eventually get around to updating all my other web-pages, too. Thanks to Tripod for hosting these pages for free, but whatever happened with their Historians Club sure is a pain in the neck. I've never tried editing one of these pages while on-line with Tripod's editor either, rather than uploading an updated page from my own computer. Let's see how this works.
