Indiana Army Ammunition Plant, History Brochure, circa 1973

This turned up recently, and its pretty unique.  As best as we can tell, its some sort of  INAAP history booklet, perhaps handed out during tours or at some conference or another.  It looks like it was written by someone at the plant, as it contains a great deal of information about INAAP; its history, its capacity, workforce, etc etc.  While it is missing a few pages (2, 20-22), it is still a remarkable little document.  Of note is the reference on page "8" to the fact that 1,000 German prisoners of war worked at the plant at one point.  Hopefully someone finds this stuff interesting.  Rather than hosting it as a pdf, it is set up as pictures that are viewable one at a time.

  1. I worked at Olin Corporation during the Vietnam War. I worked in the Employment Office at Gate 2 or 5 (can't remember which). It was a crazy time when they gave out applications. People literally stampeded to get them. The facility has now been sold and large businesses such as Amazon Fulfillment.

  2. Enjoyed this. We have camped at Charlestown State Park several times and always wanted more history of the plant. I see the bunkers or remains of them just east of the park. Wish I could drive in there for a look, not sure if that's OK.
