Surely this big fella is a history buff. Make that a HISTORY BUFFalo.
(Click the images below to enlarge them.)
The official Indiana Bicentennial Bison for Morgan County is on a migration tour, stopping off at Mooresville Public Library until August 31, 2016. Then it's back to hitting the trails again for destinations far and wide.
The bison is grazing in the library's grand hall, across from the circulation desk, near our Indiana State Flag/Paul Hadley paintings displays. But please don't touch our bison! Quite fragile, you see. Biting is a possibility, too. (Just kidding!)
Here are some close-up photos showcasing the bison's Morgan County historical images.
