The Indiana State Archives will now own the local master microfilm from Wabash County Clerk’s Office after the Wabash County Board of Commissioners voted to transfer ownership Monday during their regular meeting.

Wabash County clerk Lori Draper said the Indiana State Archives had a program that allowed counties to store master microfilm at their facilities while the county retained ownership.
