Exploring Indiana's Historic Sites, Markers & Museums - South East Edition


No discussion of basketball in Indiana would be complete without mention of the "Milan Miracle of 1954." On a cold March night in Butler Fieldhouse, the Indians of tiny Milan High School (enrollment 162) defeated the mighty Muncie Central Bearcats (enrollment 1,662), to win the state championship and secure their place in Hoosier Folklore. This is a great place to top off your Indiana vacation by reliving this legendary team of Indiana Basketball lore. The Milan "54 Museum is located on Carr Street in Milan, Indiana.

The Milan '54 Museum is doing its best to keep the story of the Milan Indian team of 1954 alive. Postcards of the team (top) and other collectibles are available at our '54 store. This is the team the movie "Hoosiers" with Gene Hackman was based on.
