The exhibit includes pictures, memorabilia, and stories of Territorial Days through the years.  The event was started in 1961 to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Amboy Post Office.  It was such a success it has continued annually, except for 2020 due to Covid restrictions. In 2021, the celebration returned with a parade and a few events at the park on Saturday.  This year it is roaring back with three days of activities!

North Clark Historical Museum will also be honoring Frank Emerick with a balloon art installation and memory boards.  Emerick managed the 12-year museum renovation and served on the Board of Directors for many years. Emerick passed away June 28, 2022.

The North Clark Historical Museum was founded in 1988 and is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors. The doors were opened in June of 2000. Mission Statement:  To preserve North Clark County’s natural and cultural history through collections and exhibits, and to sponsor educational programs and research opportunities for the enrichment of the public.
