Welcome to Connersville History! This website is a history project on industry and education in Connersville, Indiana in the second half of the 20th century. Connersville is a small town in southeastern Indiana that has grown and shrunk since its founding in 1813. The narrative that follows comes from personal narratives, private papers, and the collections of Historic Connersville, Inc.
I hope you enjoy this story of a changing community that has dealt with deindustrialization in ways both different and similar to other American cities.
If you are coming to this website as a member of the Connersville community and want to contribute to my project, submit a contact form and I will contact you about meeting.
