Johnson County Historical Society gets legal history grant

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

The Johnson County Historical Society has been awarded an Indiana Legal History Grant by the Indiana Humanities Council and the Indiana Supreme Court, the council announced today. The $2,000 award will fund projects and research to increase the understanding of the legal history of the county among those served by the county courts.

The historical society will document the places, important people and significant events that have shaped the legal system in Johnson County. The project will include a local museum display, school program guide, legal history resource list, public forum, and website component.

The Indiana Legal History Grant is a new grant that supports research, documentation, and educational projects related to Indiana’s legal history. It’s the result of a collaboration between the IHC and the Supreme Court. Nancy Conner, director of grants for IHC, said those involved hope it will become an annual grant and they have plans to offer it again this year. She encouraged anyone with questions to contact her at nconner@indianahumanities.org or 317-638-1500.
