According to historical records, Vigo County was created by an Act of the Indiana General Assembly in 1818.  Vigo County was originally part of Sullivan County.  Its name is derived from Colonel Francis Vigo, who was Italian, but was a citizen of Spain due to having a home in St. Louis. He is credited with giving assistance to George Rogers Clark in by financing Clark's exploration, as well as through American Revolutionary War efforts.

Saint Mother Theodore Guerin loved to go out into the woods and collect simple blossoms which could be used in the pharmacy she operated. This required much preparation and dicing of the herbs so as to help release their healing powers. She grew to love her adopted home of Indiana in every way. 

 

After a visit to France to support their work here in Indiana, she exclaimed as she approached her home, "I saw once more...my Indiana."

Today you too can share in that love of the Hoosier state with this commemorative kitchen plaque, made into the shape of the State of Indiana, with a thick and durable maple wood. With Saint Mother Theodore Guerin's image laser etched and a special quote, made just for this plaque, it is sure to add a special place in your home and kitchen.

walk humbly
