Judge E. P. Hammond

Judge E. P. Hammond has a very interesting scrapbook from his time as our State Circuit Court judge in Rensselaer from the 1890's.  His scrapbook is one of the older ones of the almost 10 in the present exhibit.

It is important to make the Jasper County Historical Society Museum and its contents available to the public. What would the residents of Jasper County, Indiana, like to see in their local museum?
