In Dana, Indiana, on Briarwood Avenue, sits a small, unassuming white house, with a pair of Quonset huts behind it. At first glance, it looks like a classic, early 20th-century Indiana farmhouse. In fact, that’s exactly what it is. But it is also the boyhood home of famous Hoosier war correspondent Ernie Pyle.
The house, plucked from the clutches of a bulldozer destined to demolish it in the 1970s, now stands as part of the Ernie Pyle WWII Museum. Steve Key, president of the board of directors for the museum, talked about what it had to offer. “Set as it would’ve been in the 1920s and ‘30s, the two Quonset huts behind the house make up the museum that focuses on his work as a WWII correspondent,” he said. 
Key also mentioned the events the museum puts on. “Our events committee tries to schedule an event once a month.” He said that in the coming months, an Ernie Pyle reenactor is scheduled to visit the museum. No date has been confirmed yet. 
“(Pyle) represents the most well-known correspondent of the war,” Key said. “He told the stories of those men that interested people because it wasn’t master strategy, it was what was happening to their sons, fathers, uncles, cousins, brothers and friends.”
