Harshbarger to present Andrews’ history

Posted: Friday, September 9, 2016

Janice Harshbarger of Andrews will present a program on the history of her hometown at the Wednesday, September 21 open meeting of the Huntington County Historical Museum, 315 Court Street. The program begins at 7 p.m.

The program is free to the public, and refreshments will be provided. Harshbarger will glean from her book, “Only in Andrews,” which she wrote and published this year. The book details the goings-on in the small Huntington County community from the 1880s through 1916, starting with a Miami village and tracing the town’s growth as first Antioch, and then Andrews. A sequel to the book is being researched.

Harshbarger moved to Andrews as a teenager in 1964 when her father relocated the family from the Pacific Northwest so he could attend seminary in Indianapolis while pastoring the now-closed First Christian Church in Andrews. She made it her permanent hometown after marrying John Harshbarger, an Andrews boy. “Only in Andrews” can be purchased from Harshbarger or on Amazon.com.
