The objects that individuals and families choose to bring with them when they move serve as bridges between their former and new homes, often carrying powerful memories. Through historic artifacts and first-hand accounts from immigrants today, explore the stories of objects with special importance to people who have come to Indiana from the 1800s to the present. Presented by the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites in honor of Rabbi Sandy Sasso and in partnership with the Immigrant Welcome Center.
