INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - On Tuesday morning, the Indiana Historical Society plans to open a new exhibit.
It takes visitors back to a place called the Miner Studio in Fort Wayne. The society re-created a photography studio from 1904.
Angela Giacomelli, an exhibitions researcher, said the grandson of Charles Miner gave some photographs to the society - with an admission that he didn't know anything about that part of this family's history. So, Giacomelli did some digging, which led to the creation of the Picture This exhibit.
"We want people all over the state to feel like they have a history to tell because every city - not just Indianapolis - has some great stories," she said.

The Indiana Historical Society has great stories, such as the science of preserving historic photographs and documents.
"It's artistic and it's scientific at the same time," says Senior Conservator Susan Rogers. "And, of course, it's really rewarding to be able to preserve objects like this."
Rogers demonstrated her talents using a photograph from 24-Hour News 8's Anchor Eric Halvorson. He found a musty, moldy 1917 photograph of his Grandpa Herman. Rogers started restoring it back around Labor Day. Monday afternoon, she put the finishing touches on it. Watch the video to see the process.
