Washington County Survey


This collection features materials from a Traditional Arts Indiana fieldwork survey of Washington County, Indiana conducted by Joseph O’Connell during the summer of 2009. The survey is a broad study of contemporary cultural topics in the area, including music, food, craft, and custom. The Pekin 4th of July Celebration is a focus of the project, with particular attention to the Spirit of ’76 Band and Jeff Martin’s Bucking Model T car. Collection materials consist of still photographs, sound-recorded interviews, and sound-recorded music performances.
