Evansville native Larry Miller has played the guitar and accordion on the sidewalks of Germany, the streets of Paris, the neighborhoods of Asheville, North Carolina, and back home in Haynie’s Corner Arts District.

Lyles Station, one of Indiana’s first African-American farming settlements and the only one remaining today, will be featured in the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, which will open in the fall in Washington, D.C. The museum recently acquired a rare 1970 bust of Martin Luther King Jr. by the artist Charles Alston.

The Nisbet Inn in Northern Vanderburgh County is more than 100 years old, and has the second oldest liquor license in Indiana. Last summer, the Indianapolis Star shared a tour of its city’s oldest taverns and referred to these bars as “museums but with booze.”
