On March 31st 1880, Wabash, Indiana became the first electrically lighted city in the world! It was very forward thinking and smart business decisions to jump on something new, not tried before, that ultimately led Wabash to make such an AMAZING CLAIM!
Now fast forward 142 years, and The Wabash County Museum is making another great leap in technology by bringing their visitors a SUPER INTERACTIVE museum exhibit display not yet seen before! Previously, very few people have ever been able to ascend or see inside the Wabash County Courthouse, as it is not a very easy or short climb! HOWEVER, this display will involve an interactive Virtual Tour of Wabash’s Courthouse, so that viewers are able to view inside the Clock Rooms, Bell Tower, and the Timing Chamber! Viewing the Courthouse from an outside view will even allow you to see and possibly feel what the night in 1880 may have been like!
It has been an honor to be a part of this exhibit as not only are we giving visitors and Wabash locals a chance to see something new but we have also been able to help The Wabash County Museum in preserving history that is so important to our community!
