The John H. & Thomas W. Conner Museum of Antique Printing was designed and created by Don Hill, Associate Director of the Southern Indiana Center for the Arts and is part of the art center. A new building was designed to fit the 1800’s era.
The museum exhibits presses dating back beyond 1850, including a Washington iron hand press, a C&P 1875 treadle press, and several pilot presses. All are in working condition and were used by the local newspaper in Seymour.
A time line of the history of the written and printed word from the clay tablet to stone lithography, is displayed displayed around the room.
We give tours to schools and groups of all ages. Often printers will be on hand working on projects and will gladly show the methods of printing from hand-set type.
