Historical society honors Jay Brown

ANDERSON — The Madison County Historical Society has presented Jay Brown of Pendleton with the 2021 Elwood H. Phillips Award. The honor recognizes and celebrates Brown’s accomplishments in historic preservation.

He has been involved in preserving history since he was a young man, beginning with helping out the historical museum next door to his grandmother’s home in Salem, Indiana.

His most recent accomplishments for Madison County are moving and restoring the 1830s-era log cabin that is now part of Falls Park and rebuilding the Conestoga wagon that pioneer John Rogers used when he came to Madison County in 1818. In addition, Jay bought the two-story homestead built by Rogers in 1837 and restored it as the Brown family home.

His significant contributions to the preservation of Madison County history has let him join the previous 38 award winners.
