Celebrate Evansville’s 200th Birthday By Taking a Trip Back in Time [VIDEO]
March 27, 2012, marks the 200th Anniversary of founder Hugh McGary’s purchase of the 200 acres of land that would ultimately become the City of Evansville. Someone created a youtube video that has pictures of Evansville throughout time. I’ve even seen some pictures of places I remember hearing my parents talk about (Like, do you remember Funkys?! That was a little before my time, but I’ve heard plenty of stories about that place from my parents)
I was on Facebook and my Dad sent me this really cool video, there’s no music, just pictures of Evansville throughout the past 200 years, and I have to say, this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen (yeah, I’m a little biased, I was born and raised in Evansville, so this is my hometown I’ll always have a soft spot for it.) But they’ve got everything, from pictures of the flood that happened back in the ’30’s to pictures of Funkys, and they’ve even got pictures of the construction of Bosse Field. And let’s get serious for a second, you need to check out the cars in the pictures! They’re so cool!
Do you remember any of these places shown in the video?
