The mission of the HCHS is to collect, preserve and interpret the history of Hancock County Indiana. However, in addition to collecting artifacts, the organization helps to educate the public on the history of Hancock County through programs, education pieces, books, lectures, and information services. We host several events throughout the year including entertainment activities, workshops and historical lectures. There are also special interest committees that meet periodically. Check out the web site for more information.
The Old Log Jail Museum and the Chapel in the Park are open to visitors on Saturday and Sunday from 1-5 p.m. during the months of April through October. Admission is $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for children.
