At the turn of the 20th century, prohibition was gaining traction across the United States. Join the staff of the Hamilton East Public library's Indiana Room as we explore teetotalers and bootleggers from Hamilton County during the early 1900s. Find out who drove the political forces in Indiana to promote temperance across the state. Take a tipple from a Fishers brewery as you discover how local Hamilton County bootleggers operated outside the system with their "blind tiger" establishments.
Must be 18 or older to attend. Must be 21 or older to imbibe. Registration required and begins September 4th.
This program is part of the 2023 Hamilton County Bicentennial celebrations.
