VINCENNES, Ind. (AP) — The new marketing director for six state historic sites across southern Indiana says people often forget the unique attractions that are near their homes.

Laura Limp will oversee promotion and fundraising at the sites operated by the Indiana State Museum. Those are the Vincennes territorial capital sites, Angel Mounds in Evansville, Historic New Harmony, the Corydon state capital, the Culbertson Mansion in New Albany and Madison's Lanier Mansion.

Limp tells the Vincennes Sun-Commercial she wants to see children become interested in the state's history and keep adults involved as well. She says all six historic sites are distinctive and wants to create a new awareness for each one.

Limp previously worked for a Chicago-based communications firm and was marketing director for the American Red Cross in Evansville.
