June 19, 2016: Lyles Station Juneteenth Celebration

Video presentations of
'"America's Untold Journey"
Featuring Lyle Station at 1pm

Juneteenth, also know as Emancipation Day, celebrates the
ending of slavery on June 19, 1865, in one of the last
Confederate holdouts of the Civil War — Galveston, Texas.
Nearly two months after the war ended on that date, blacks
there first received official word that slavery was abolished.

After originating in Galveston, the celebration every June 19 has
slowly spread and is now officially recognized as a state
holiday or state holiday observance in 25 states. Indiana does
not recognize the day as an official state holiday, but many
events throughout the state, such as the one at Lyles Station,
commemorate the day.

The Lyles Consolidated School is located 4 miles west of Princeton, IN at the intersection of County Roads 100 N and 500 W. For more information, call 812-385-2534.
