Robinson and Crawford County

Book cover with photo of Robinson courthouse.

By Evelyn M. Wallace and Sue Jones. The histories of Robinson, Palestine, and Oblong, along with the smaller towns of Crawford County, are rich and colorful, reaching back to 1680 when a French trading post was established near the Wabash River. In these pages, readers will learn about Crawford County's Pioneer City and where Abraham Lincoln stayed when his family came through and will see homes and businesses of the prodigious leaders of Robinson and their improvements to this rural area. Readers will experience the oil boom of the early 1900s, the horrible fate of the Hutson family, the flying Rousch brothers, and the life of James Jones, author of From Here to Eternity. Cost is $20, plus $7 for shipping.
