Orange County Historial Society Hosting “The Faces of Lincoln”

(ORLEANS) – The Orange County Historical Society is hosting “The Faces of Lincoln,” an Indiana Historical Society traveling exhibit at the Orleans Public Library.

This is a two-part exhibit. The first part is on display now through March 2 and the second part will be open from March 3-March 31.

The exhibit is taken from IHS’s Lincoln collection, acquired in 2003 with the help of the Lilly Endowment Inc.

“The Faces of Lincoln” explores the public perception of the former president in three parts: “Developing the Image,” “Creating the Image” and “Idealizing the Image.”

The library is at 174 N. Maple St. (State Road 37), one block north of the public square. It is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is closed Sunday and Wednesday.
