We are excited to announce that our book, The Early History of Carmel Schools, is now available! Among the many exciting discoveries, we found that Carmel High School was established in 1869, not 1887 as was previously thought. 2019 is the school’s 150th anniversary! You can read more about this discovery in the Current in Carmel newspaper.

You’ll also learn about Carmel’s other high school, the Poplar Ridge Seminary (1860-1888), as well as the pioneer log cabin schools and the one-room district schoolhouses. The book includes pictures of schoolhouses from nearly all the school districts and numerous stories and recollections from the students and teachers who attended them.

The book is on sale at the Monon Depot for $5. If you would like us to ship you a copy, please give our office a call at 317-846-7117.
