|Description:||Established in 1969, the Ohio County Historical Society opened its museum in 1972. Displays focus on the 1800's and early 20th century life and events. The best known item in the collection is the racing boat, HOOSIER BOY, famous raceboat of the early 1900's. The boat holds the record between Cincinnati and Louisville, round trip, at 60 mph. It was designed, built and raced by J. W. Whitlock of Rising Sun.
On October 5, 2003, the HOOSIER GIRL, the sister boat to the HOOSIER BOY, came home. The HOOSIER GIRL was built in the 1940s after the first one (built 1908) sunk in the early 1940s. She is an exact duplicate of the original boat.
