Hoosier kitchen cabinetFollowing East Central Indiana’s gas boom in the late 19th Century, the Hoosier cabinet, an innovative free-standing piece of kitchen furniture, emerged as one of the most iconic products of the region’s manufacturing 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”, an exhibition in the Minnetrista, 1200 North Minnetrista Parkway, Muncie, Indiana, considers the story of this influential product and the companies that made it.

Road Trips Foodies can 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, and peer in on a slice of history and experience the stories of the men and women caught up in its wake. The exhibition is open through February 16, 2020.
