March 9, 1889 - Indiana Farmers' Institute Act Passed
The passage of the Indiana Farmers' Institute Act provided legal recognition for the many agricultural educational programs that Purdue University had run across the state during previous years. It also provided the framework for later laws that established the Purdue Extension Service, the 4-H program and many other agricultural programs Purdue has established over the ensuing years.

Indiana possesses a rich history that is fun to read and learn. This Hoosier Dusty Files is in an easy to read “this day in history format” and includes articles from the author's A Year in Indiana History series. Visitors may read the articles as they appear or purchase the book:
