Presentation on the site (tips & hacks) - 4/13 2pm @ USI Rice Library

Welcome to 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.

In total, we aim to enlighten Evansville's citizens about buildings of the past and their history. Please feel free to surf our site and explore our historic Evansville!
