The aim of the Parke County Historical Society is to preserve and present Parke County Heritage through the local society-owned museum (which at various times has been a Civil War Armory, Negro School and other interesting places). 

PROJECTS -- the group has recently finished renovating the museum and are now looking at expansion. They have  completed a combined atlas of the county (1874 & 1912) which the includes Parke County Centennial Memorial.  The atlas sells for $35 plus postage and  a limited amount  are still available at the museum and at the Rockville Public Library. They are also in the process of collecting living history videos.
