The CCHS maintains two buildings: the Monon Depot Museum and the archives building. Both are located on the Monon Greenway one block south of Main Street. The Museum’s address is 211 First Street SW. The archives are located directly south of the museum. Parking for both facilities is available in the public lot just east of the museum along the Monon Greenway.

To reach the museum, take Range Line Road to 1st Street SW. Turn west and drive two blocks. The parking and the society facilities are on your left immediately before crossing the Monon Greenway.

With the safety of our visitors and staff in mind, visitors will be limited to three at a time in the museum. Larger groups can view the exhibit together if they are from the same family group. There will be no public restroom available. No one with a fever or flu-like symptoms should enter the museum. Social distancing is required while viewing the exhibit.
