This public program is FREE of charge. 

Angel Mounds Director, Mike Linderman, will discuss the plans to rebuild the WPA camp buildings erected during the 1930's at Angel Mounds.  Linderman's discussion will touch on the history of the WPA at the site with Eli Lilly and Glenn Black and what was accomplished. The talk will then shift to present day plans to rebuild the original camp buildings and how Angel Mounds has gone about finding exact location, size and building design to ensure construction of the most accurate representation.
