WARSAW — Preparations are underway for the March 6 re-opening of the Kosciusko County Old Jail Museum and Genealogy Library, located at 121 N. Indiana St., Warsaw.
Hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Self-guided day tours of the Old Jail and Museum are free during regular hours. Guides are available on Fridays. Large group tours can also be arranged.
The Old Jail Museum is also searching for friendly front desk volunteers to greet visitors as they embark on their journey through time and the history of Kosciusko County. Museum and research volunteer hours coincide with open hours. Even a couple of hours would be appreciated.
If you are interested in helping, stop by the Old Jail Museum during open hours, or contact Co-Directors Evelyn Rake and Greg Steffe at (574) 269-1078 or [email protected] for more information.
The staff has been busily reorganizing the displays to more effectively tell the story of Kosciusko County. Featured this season will be the 75th anniversary of D-Day, running April through November.
In September, the society will hold its largest fundraiser ever: the Warsaw ParaFest. Hosted by Warsaw Indiana Paranormal Research and Studies, the conference will be bringing some of the biggest names in the paranormal investigating world to Warsaw. Details will be released very soon.
If you have an interest in the paranormal, please call the society office or reach out to [email protected] to arrange weekend night time tours to meet the spirits of the Old Jail. If you have not been to the museum lately, come in for a visit and reconnect with how towns, companies and people came to be in this county.
