Southern Indiana is a historic region abundant in natural and recreational resources. Many small towns, rich in heritage, are scattered across the hilly landscape, including Vincennes, Corydon, Madison, and Abram Lincoln’s childhood home. The beautiful area is sprinkled with forests, rivers, caves, and lakes.
Historic Southern Indiana (HSI) is an organization at the University of Southern Indiana that is dedicated to the preservation, enhancement, and promotion of these natural resources. HSI serves as a heritage-based regional outreach program for students and local community members alike. They provide educational resources such as guides to the historic sites as well as lesson plans and educational documents. The HSI hosts events throughout the year to promote the heritage of the area. There is also a community resource guide available for visitors and long-time residents.
