Clabber Girl- Terre Haute, IN

I have to admit, I had no idea what Clabber Girl was until my wife suggested that we visit the Museum dedicated to it in Terre Haute Indiana.

So, if you don't know, Clabber Girl is a brand of baking powder.

The museum was a lot of fun, going over the history of baking powder and the company itself.

There were several displays showing old household items.  A local artists gets a section of the museum too, which I thought was pretty cool.  The company is strongly connected to the Indianapolis 500 and there is a cool race car display about that too.

You can call ahead to arrange a guided or a bit more specialized tour, but we did a casual self guided stroll through the museum.

Part of the facility is a bake shop and we really enjoyed this part!  We each had a soup and sandwich and they were perfect.  In fact, the portions were big, and we ended up taking half sandwiches home with us. 

If the museum part wasn't here, I would still recommend that you visit the cafe.  It is that good!

There is something very special about visiting the Clabber Girl Museum and Cafe in the well preserved old Hulman Building.  The place has a very historic and authentic feel.

Like the Hulman Building, the Clabber Girl brand is well preserved here.  Plus, this part of Terre Haute is just a fun, old style downtown area.  We really enjoyed our trip to the Terre Haute area.
