The Dan Quayle Center, the former First Church of Christ, Scientist, Huntington, Indiana,

The United States Vice Presidential Museum at the Dan Quayle Center is located at 815 Warren Street in Huntington, Indiana, where former Vice President Dan Quayle attended high school. The Museum is downtown in a renovated church, the former First Church of Christ, Scientist, and has two floors, the first featuring the history of all the Vice Presidents, and the second housing memorabilia and a theater. Regular school programs are held [1]

In addition, special attention is paid to the five Vice Presidents hailing from Indiana; Schuyler Colfax, Thomas Hendricks, Charles Fairbanks, Thomas Marshall and Dan Quayle and the three losing Vice Presidential-candidates; George W. Julian, William H. English and John W. Kern.

At one time in American history, Indiana was a vital "swing state;" as such, it provided numerous candidates for Vice President.
