Land of Limestone Museum

Bedford's The Land of Limestone museum recreates how Lawrence County's famous limestone was used to build and embellish architectural landmarks including the Empire State Building. Also stop and see the fabulous Green Hills Cemetery, where monuments, benches and other artifacts showcase the stonecarvers' art.

[Liz Joss, 10/05/2000]

October 2007: The Indiana Limestone Building that houses the Land of Limestone Museum is now owned by a small, fundamentalist Christian college. In December 2006, Academic Dean Doug Garrett opened an exhibit in the Museum, based on his own research, "providing scientific evidence exposing the godless relativists attempt to replace God with flawed scientific facts."
