Hop on board and let the good times roll on this unique historical tour.

Historic Evansville

Historic Evansville has a passion for preserving the past.  Evansville has quite an interesting history, and many historic locations, and Historic Evansville works to provide information on many of our city's historical structures.

HistoricEvansville.com is a site dedicated to the immense history of the city of Evanville through the years. We provide information about sites, existing and long gone, including history, architecture, and pictures. Maps by year show how a neighborhood looked 50, 100, even 150 years ago. Also available are images through the years where you can see the same site over time to see the damaging effects of neglect and the wrecking ball. The history section provides a timeline and other interesting facts to help you get started.


They're hosting a really unique event on May 27th that you can join and learn more about some of Evansville's historical taverns and breweries.
