Indiana means “the land of Indians.” And as far as inhabited land in North America, indigenous tribes have called this state home for thousands of years. Even as early settlers moved West, migration was rather horizontal, and folks from their respective parts of the Eastern US found the land of Indians to be the new place to call home, bringing a melting pot of Americana that lives and breathes to this day. All of these poignant moments in time are preserved for tourists attractions by the Indiana Historical Society, and will delight and educate everyone from the Native American researcher to the whole family.

Dear Friends,
On Saturday July 13th, Bearcreek Farms will be presenting legendary Hollywood comedian impressionist Rich Little at 2pm and 7:30pm.  I’m sure you remember as I do Rich Little’s numerous television appearances over the years including The Johnny Carson Show, and the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast specials. Rich Little got his start in 1964 on The Judy Garland Show. Back in September our technical director Dennis Butts and I had the chance to see Rich Little while in Las Vegas scouting entertainment. Of course Rich Little is known for being “The Man of 1000 Voices” – and even after all these years Rich Little has gone to great lengths to keep the cornerstone of his act -doing the voices- fresh, new and relevant by creating a brand new show that plays nightly at the LVH (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton).
