The Indiana Historical Society’s Traveling Exhibit, “Hoosiers and Their Hooch,” will be hosted by the La Porte County Historical Society Museum from Thursday, March 5, 2020 through Thursday, April 2, 2020.
Join us for a trip back to the rise and fall of prohibition in Indiana and throughout the country, from the temperance movement of the 1900s to the repeal of the 18th amendment in 1933. Learn about the Anti-Saloon League, and the bootleggers, moonshiners, and bathtub gin distillers who found their way around the law.
Regular admission rates apply: $5.00 adults, $4.00 adults 60 and older, children 18 and under free. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and is handicapped accessible.
