  • Wayne County Historical Museum
    1930 was a watershed year in the effort to preserve Indiana's state history. For starters, it was the year Julia Meek Gaar donated her personal effects to the Wayne County, Indiana Historical Society. That would have been enough to celebrate on its own, but then the Whitewater Monthly Meeting of Friends donated their historical Friends Meeting House as well. In the decades following those two gifts, local residents have filled out the Wayne County Historical Museum's exhibition halls with their own contributions, both small and large. When viewed together, these gifts paint a vivid picture of Wayne County from the pioneer era through contemporary times. The museum itself consists of eight buildings, the most impressive of which is a log schoolhouse built in the early 19th century. These buildings house hundreds of artifacts from the museum's permanent collection, including everything from a 3,000-year-old mummy to a restored 1922 Pilot Speedster. More vintage rides grace the museum lawn during cruise-ins?just one example of the many events held here throughout the year. Others include a heritage festival and a haunted-house night, during which the aforementioned mummy comes to life and stalks visitors.

  • Valley's Edge
    Families and friends glide down Valley’s Edge’s snowy hills atop provided tubes during wind-whipped adventures. During each two-hour tubing outing, groups of two or four take as many tube runs as they like, getting back to the top of the hill via the snow lift or a single superhuman leap. Families of two adults and two children, or one adult and three children, can use the family pass for two hours of tubing fun. Although only one person is allowed per tube, guests can link up to three tubes together so parents or friends caught in chinese finger traps can cling to each other during the descent. Valley’s Edge is open until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, enabling outdoor fun to last long after the sun closes its eye for the evening.
