Preservation

For sale: The Glossbrenner Mansion

A couple years ago I told you the story of the 1910 Glossbrenner Mansion, on Meridian St. at 32nd St. in Indianapolis. Read it here. The preservation advocates at Indiana Landmarks had just purchased the home and held a holiday open house there, which I attended.

Indiana Landmarks has completed a number of improvements to the mansion, including removing a 1950s addition, and is about to place the property on the market. But first, they’re opening it up to the public for one last chance to see it. The event is this Thursday, April 4, fom 5 to 7 pm. It’s free, but you need a ticket; click here to get one.

If you can’t make it, here are a few photos I took when I visited in 2010. This is the main entry.

  1. I love old houses like this!! The crown moldings around the ceiling are stunning! I can’t imagine how much it would cost to maintain a place a like that. I hope someone buys it and takes care of it! It’s just gorgeous!

  2. It will be interesting to see who would buy this house. I can’t imagine living in a place this size. Although at least I wouldn’t have trouble finding a place to store my old cameras.

    • I hope it sells to someone who will live in it rather than to someone who will use it for, say, a business purpose.

      I can’t imagine living in a place so large either. I can barely take care of my 1400 sf house!
