Indiana Military Museum moving to Vincennes site
VINCENNES, Ind. (AP) – The Indiana Military Museum is moving from its site outside Vincennes in southwestern Indiana to a location a couple of blocks from the city’s downtown.
The Vincennes Sun-Commercial reports that museum founder Jim Osborne hopes to have the museum ready for visitors sometime this summer.
The new site is at the former Blackford Glass Factory. Plans include construction of a multi-million dollar, 59,000-square-foot museum. Osborne said donations are still needed to complete the move and pay for upgrades to the facility like a new heating and air system as well as a near 2,200 foot long fence to surround and protect the property.
