Earlier this year Arcadia Publishing and The History Press ran a Dads Love Local contest for local retailers around the country that challenged them to create outstanding store displays for Father’s Day featuring local products. Congratulations to the Conner Prairie Interactive History Park in Fishers, IN for winning the Dads Love Local contest and receiving a trip to Charleston, SC!
Their winning display featured local products from across Indiana like B. Happy Peanut Butter from Zionsville, Triple XXX Root Beer from West Lafeyette, Farmers Hands Therapeutic Hand Crème from Muncie, and hand-crafted pottery pieces made by artisans at the Conner Prairie Museum. And of course, we love the use of regional history books! Seen in this photo are Hoosier Beer

and Murder & Mayhem in Indiana
Conner Prairie is one of the largest attractions in the region and one of the most visited outdoor museums in the country. They have a long history of innovation that spans the fields of science, history, art, and nature. On their grounds, every guest has the opportunity to pursue fun and knowledge in a way that is tailored to them.
In a time where meals are rushed and everyone is in a hurry to get to soccer practice or ballet class, we provide families with multi-generational opportunities to come together, interact and learn in new and unique ways in the heart of Indiana. Each and every day, they inspire curiosity and foster meaningful interaction with unique, engaging experiences that don’t exist anywhere else.
Becky Brown and Elaine Molin from Conner Praire jumped at the chance to explore Charleston's museums, attractions and restaurants. See below for highlights from their adventures in the Holy City.
