Alexandria is a small peaceful town in east central Indiana with lots of friendly folks. Located about 50 miles northeast of Indianapolis, our community is nestled in the heart of the Midwest farmland. You don’t have to drive very far to find lots of tomato, corn, and soybean fields.


Who We Are

The Alexandria-Monroe Township Historical Society (AMTHS) started in 1979 by John and Marsha Madden, Max and Nancy Draper, Curt and Rosemary Ellis, Jim Donahue and John Noffze. John Madden was the first president. The AMTHS museum is located at 313 North Harrison across from the New Horner’s Hometown Market (formerly Cox’s Supermarket). We have a great collection of articles on display including Aladdin Lamps, and memorabilia from Lippincott Glass, Kelly Axe, and the Union Traction Co.
