Hendricks County Historical Museum

One block south of the square

The Hendricks County Historical Museum is a fascinating place filled with artifacts dating back to 1866 when the Museum served as the Sheriff’s Residence and jail. There are several rooms decorated in the period of early 1900’s, including the kitchen, parlor and bedrooms. Come and experience the rich history of Hendricks County, Indiana.

The two-story brick structure is the only surviving example of the Second Empire style of architecture in the county. The Second Empire style was popular after the Civil War and has as defining elements, a central tower and a mansard roof. The museum was the first building in Hendricks County to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
