Richmond, Indiana: Then and Now

Those of you who have either visited or better yet still live in Richmond will appreciate this new resource from Morrisson-Reeves Library. It’s called Then and Now and it offers a glimpse into the past of Richmond, Indiana. I spent some time going through and I find it amazing how much change a city can go through (in good and bad ways) in a matter of 100 years. Then and Now is part of a larger section of Local History for Richmond.
I started looking through the pictures because I was trying to find some photos of what the Whitewater Gorge looked like when the Starr-Gennett buildings were there. I find it fascinating that the now useless but beautiful Whitewater Gorge used to be the location of one of the largest employers in Richmond.
Another interesting section, which I posted here before is the Lost Richmond section, which features photos and writeups of buildings that no longer exist. Sadly, after looking through most of the photos of what Richmond used to be vs. what is is now, this isn’t a case of positive progress.
