EXCHANGE-CIVIL WAR TROVE
KOKOMO — Kokomo resident John N. Underwood was among the troops served under Civil War Gen. Thomas J. Harrison’s command in the 39th Indiana Infantry, 8th Indiana Cavalry. Underwood — who later became the treasurer of Howard County before his untimely death — detailed his war experience in his original 90-page diary. The 18-month account was miraculously found on Ebay by Randy Smith, assistant curator at the Howard County Historical Society. The pocket-sized book is much too frail to be handled by all of the history buffs in Howard County, but now, for the first time, residents will have access to these rare letters and other Civil War documents online, thanks to an $11,000 grant to the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library.

EXCHANGE-NAVAL ARMORY SCHOOL
INDIANAPOLIS — When it was decommissioned in 2015, the near northwest side wasn’t sure what would become of the Heslar Naval Armory. The large white building perched on the edge of the White River at 30th Street could have become a blight on the area — another abandoned building. Instead, a high school is breathing new life into the building and restoring it to the building’s original purpose: education. Not only is Riverside restoring the building to its original purpose, it’s also preserving many of the building’s unique touches - from the compass inlaid on the floor to the submarine training room.
