The CCHS maintains two buildings: the Monon Depot Museum and the archives building. Both are located on the Monon Greenway one block south of Main Street. The Museum’s address is 211 First Street SW. The archives are located directly south of the museum. Parking for both facilities is available in the public lot just east of the museum along the Monon Greenway.
