The Questers Mission Statement:
"Questers Keep History Alive By Supporting Preservation, Restoration And Education"
The Questers is a non-profit international organization. The Questers was founded in 1944 by Jessie Elizabeth Bardens in Pennsylvania and has grown to include Chapters throughout the United States and Canada. Its purpose is to encourage an appreciation of history and the preservation and restoration of historical landmarks.
Indiana Questers are affiliated with the international organization. There are 18 chapters throughout the state. Questers restore local, state, and national historical artifacts and landmarks, and have an interest in learning about and preserving their community's history. At Chapter meetings, the highlight is a program focusing on a collection, historic story or historic site, often presented by a Quester member, local collector or other expert.
