A Brief Mooresville Historical Sketch From Half a Century Ago

On April 11, 1966, as part of Indiana's sesquicentennial celebration, The Messenger, a Plainfield, Indiana newspaper (1964-1984), published a special supplement entitled "Mooresville Week," in which some of the community's historical highlights were showcased.  The articles were written by Wanda Potts, late Indiana Room Librarian at Mooresville Public Library (1966-2002) and Town Historian.  Click the hyperlinks below to read this special four-page edition, which, due to their respective file sizes, we have digitized into parts.  Long-time residents will enjoy the advertisements from nearly 50 years ago.
