A group of six FTHS board members met this morning at the Meeting House to do some much-needed cleaning and maintenance on the building. In addition to preserving Franklin Township's heritage through artifact preservation and education, part of our mission is to care for the former Big Run Baptist Church, built in 1871. The building was donated to the Society when the church formally dissolved in 1977, and is now included in the National Register of Historic Places and the Indiana Register of Historic Sites and Structures
