Conner Prairie Interactive History Park has been named a Site of Conscience by the New York-based International Coalition of Sites of Conscience. Conner Prairie is now one of more than 250 members across 65 countries to be honored for its high standards and initiatives to connect history to current events.
International Coalition of Sites of Conscience is an organization that encompasses the only global network of historic sites, museums and memory initiatives that connect past struggles to today’s movements for human rights.
“Since 1974, Conner Prairie has been a destination where people can experience history in a way that books cannot teach, as founder Eli Lilly envisioned,” Norman Burns, president, and CEO at Conner Prairie, said in a news release. “By building on his vision, we are opening doors to a more diverse audience reflective of the local, state and national communities we serve. We are deeply honored the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience has recognized our efforts, and we look forward to maintaining and building upon the award-winning programs that have led us to this moment.”
