Hoosier Innovation

Making the Modern Kitchen

Following East Central Indiana’s gas boom, the Hoosier cabinet, an innovative free-standing piece of kitchen furniture, emerged as one of the most iconic products of the region’s booming industry. Created around 1900, the Hoosier not only revolutionized the home kitchen, but also left its mark on the region, state, and nation for decades to come. Hoosier Innovation considers the story of this influential product and the companies that made it. Take a walk through the gas boom and into daily factory life. Explore the effects of regional industry and the modernization of the American kitchen. Peer in on a slice of history and experience the stories of the men and women caught up in its wake.

After Hours at Minnetrista: The OutCiders

We have a long, proud tradition of pressing cider at Minnetrista and Muncie has a deep love of craft beer–what could be better than combining these two passions for our Outciders event? Come together for an evening in the beautiful Nature Area before winter descends and the cold weather keeps us indoors. With hard cider, hot dogs, s’mores and a bonfire, it’s bound to be a great time!

A 21-and-older event.
