Older homes can be a part of the Bicentennial celebration

Get a Bicentennial Home yard sign at the Chamber.



During this ongoing year of bicentennial celebrations, the Daviess County Historical Society and Washington Bicentennial Committee are recognizing local homes built at least 100 years ago with official Bicentennial Home yard signs.

The  two-color yard signs are free of charge to 200 Daviess County homeowners on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Those interested may pick up their signs at the Daviess County Chamber of Commerce on Depot Street between 8 A.M. And 4 P.M., Monday through Friday. If possible, please have the date your house was built, this can be found in your home’s title documents. Additionally, if you’d like to volunteer more background information on the history of your home, you may pick up a “house biography” sheet with your sign which can then be returned to the Daviess County Museum for inclusion in the archives.

The DCHS also encourages everyone who receives a sign to photograph it with their house and send the photo by email to the museum’s email address at dchistory@sbcglobal.net.
