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.
This parlor is on the first floor.
Everywhere you look, rich woods surround you.
Another historic Indianapolis house is for sale: the Boardman House. Check it out!
