Dearborn County Historical Society
Located in the historic Vance-Tousey House in downtown Lawrenceburg, the Dearborn County Historical Society offers a variety of services for visitors interested in the county's rich history, including genealogical research assistance, a restored log cabin and programs and special events on occasion. It is a must place to visit to learn the history of this part of southeast Indiana.
Vance-Tousey House
Constructed by Lawerenceburg founder Samuel C. Vance, this 1818 structure is a two-story, five bay, Late Georgian / Federal style brick and sandstone home. The National Register of Historic Places listed it in 2000. Omer Tousey owned the home later on.
Angevine Log Cabin
Built by James Angevine around 1820 to replace an earlier cabin that a flooding Tanners Creek washed away. Native to New York City, Angevine had been a sailor before moving to Dearborn County in 1818, where he opened a grocery store. He and his wife Susan raised twelve children in this cabin. They lived in the cabin untl 1834 when they built a bigger brick home higher up on the hill. The Dearborn County Historical Society purchased, moved and restored the cabin in 1985.
