Campaign to Preserve Our Heritage11/25/2019
Howard County’s long tradition of military service is on display in the Seiberling Mansion. We’re proud of Howard County’s role in defending the country and our democratic ideals. Preserving stories of service, and the artifacts and documents that characterize that tradition, is a key role for the historical society. Our collections include the Civil War diary of John Underwood and the Distinguished Service Cross awarded posthumously to Sgt. E.F. Reed for heroism during World War I. Our exhibits include papers and the uniform of Sgt. James Tompkins, who served in France during the Great War, correspondence to a local teacher from her students who were serving overseas during World War II, along with war materials produced in Kokomo factories. We have interviews with soldiers who served in Korea and secret sensors developed by Delco Electronics for use in Vietnam.
You can help keep alive the memory of our soldiers and sailors and their sacrifices. Your donation to the historical society’s Flamekeepers campaign will support our mission to preserve and share Howard County’s tradition of service. It will help provide a safe, climate-controlled environment, specialized preservation and exhibition equipment, and professional expertise.
