The Tell City Historical Society in downtown Tell City showcases the area’s first fire engine, St. Paul’s clock hands and an immigrant’s violin. The new Perry County Courthouse Museum in Cannelton conjures up many memories with its antique pianos and organs, crockery, photograph collection, blacksmith shop, original log homes and annual quilt display.
