Exhibit at The Indiana State Museum: Nov. 16, 2013 – Aug. 17, 2014 Underneath Indiana’s soil lies a hidden graveyard of Ice Age giants. Entombed for thousands of years, the remains of these ancient elephants continue to be uncovered by Hoosiers across the state. The Indiana State Museum has been hard at work for decades – discovering, digging, studying and preserving the remains of mammoths, mastodons and other Ice Age animals.

Picture Books:It’s not often that you find the remains of a prehistoric animal right in your own backyard. That’s what happened on the Christensen farm, near Greenfield, Indiana, in 1976. As workers used machinery to create a pond, they accidentally scooped up the skull, teeth, and some rib bones of a mastodon. The mastodon is an extinct relative of the modern elephant that roamed the earth more than 10, 000 years ago. The bones were excavated by a cooperative effort of the IUPUI Department of Geology, the Indiana Amateur Archaeological Society and The Children’s Museum.

BackBus WeGiveBooksSmall ReadThe Hallelujah Flight – During the Great Depression, the ace black pilot James Banning decided to fly from coast to coast to serve as an inspiration to people everywhere. So with a little ingenuity and a whole lot of heart, he fixed up the dilapidated OXX6 Eagle Rock plane with his co-pilot and mechanic, Thomas Allen, earning them the derisive nickname, “The Flying Hobos.” But with the help of friends and family along the way who signed their names on the wings of the plane in exchange for food, fuel and supplies, Banning and Allen made it through treacherous weather and overcame ruthless prejudice to receive a heroes’ welcome upon landing in New York on October 9, 1932.
