Journey through the history of working people in Indianapolis, the city that they built, and legacy they left — all with a local libation in hand.
Like many Midwestern cities, Indianapolis was built on the labor of hardworking citizens. Originally a fur trading settlement, the arrival of the railroads turned a swampy settlement into the bustling metropolis we know and love today! The wealth of jobs in the city attracted people from all walks of life, all looking for a better future. But that didn’t mean life was always easy for the citizens of Indianapolis. Strikes, civil rights and economic conflicts shaped much of the city’s history. Crawl through time as we explore these pivotal moments in Indianapolis history – with plenty of surprises we cannot reveal!
