Ohio County Historical Society

RISING SUN, Ind. – Today, Senator Mike Braun visited the Ohio County Historical Society in Rising Sun as part of his 92 County Tour for 2022. Senator Braun toured the museum and saw many artifacts of Ohio County history, including the famous early 20th century racing boats – Hoosier Boy and Hoosier Girl – which set speed records sailing between Cincinnati and Louisville on the Ohio River.

Every year, Senator Braun visits all 92 counties in Indiana. This week, he will visit 17 Hoosier counties in southeastern and east-central Indiana.

“Every county in Indiana has played its unique and important part in Hoosier history, and today I stopped in to the Ohio County Historical Society to learn more about Ohio County and talk to folks about this community and their history.”— Senator Mike Braun

“We’re very thankful that Senator Braun and his group stopped in today to see the Ohio County Historical Society, see the Hoosier Boy and Hoosier Girl and our collection of various items and artifacts we have in our building. Very thankful to him for stopping in.” – Marilyn Craig
