EVANSVILLE MUSEUM’S CURATOR OF HISTORY
TO PRESENT HISTORY OF EARLY EVANSVILLE HOTELS
On Tuesday, June 24 at 6:30 p.m., Evansville Museum Curator of History and Vanderburgh County Historical Society Board Member Thomas Lonnberg will give the PowerPoint program Welcome Traveler. In his PowerPoint program presented in the Museum’s new Koch Immersive Theater, Lonnberg will share information and images recalling establishments that served visitors to our City from the early 19th century through the mid 20th century. The presentation will focus on well-known hotels such as the Vendome and McCurdy and will also recall lesser-known establishments that served the community in the days when riverboats lined the city’s wharf and passenger trains frequented Evansville.
Lonnberg has served as the Evansville Museum’s curator of history for 26 years. In that time, he has curated over 100 exhibitions many of which have focused on the history of Evansville. He is on the boards of the Vanderburgh County Historical Society and the Corridor of Champions.
