Old Vanderburgh County Courthouse Announces New Video Series & Lunch On The Lawn Event in Downtown Evansville
When you think about the Old Vanderburgh County Courthouse, you might just think about The Catacombs haunted house, but it holds a lot more than that. If the walls could talk, we would hear some amazing stories of Evansville's history. We don't have to wait for the walls to start talking to get the history, though. The Old Courthouse Foundation is releasing a new video series that is full of amazing history and stories.
Randall T. Shepard Courtroom
The videos are narrated by the amazing Larry Bristow. Larry lives and breaths the Old Courthouse, so he was the perfect choice to share his knowledge in the video series.
