The changing face of Hancock County is captured here with a fascinating collection of over 90 vintage images, each paired with their modern equivalent. This display allows us a glimpse into the past and an opportunity to recognize the often radical changes that have occurred. Hancock County Then & Now captures the essence of Hancock County's evolution. From the opening of the National Road that allowed visitors from near and far to help shape the face of the community, to its industrial boom in 1887 with the discovery of natural gas in the area, Hancock County has certainly kept pace with the changes over the years.
