Completed in 1888 and built of Indiana limestone, this Renaissance Revival-style structure has been the center of
Indiana government for more than 100 years.
Focal points are the stained-glass rotunda, Supreme Court,
House and Senate chambers and the governor's office.
Built in 1892 as a cultural, social and athletic club for the German-speaking population of Indianapolis,
the Athenaeum was originally called Das Deutsche Haus.
Listed in the National Register of Historic Places,
the German Renaissance Revival-style building was designed by Bernhard Vonnegut, the grandfather of noted
author and Indianapolis native Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
The club includes the Keller Bar, a band shell, banquet facilities, a branch of the YMCA and the city's oldest restaurant,
the American Cabaret Theatre and the city's oldest restauran, the Rathskeller.
Crown Hill Cemetery
Established in 1863 just north of downtown Indianapolis, this historic cemetery is the third largest in the
country and one of the largest natural areas in Marion County. Notable burials and memorials include President
Benjamin Harrison, three vice presidents, Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley and the infamous bank robber, John Dillinger.
President Benjamin Harrison Home and Old Northside Neighborhood
Built in 1875, this National Historic Landmark was the home of America's 23rd president.
The 16-room Italianate mansion, from which Harrison

Special programs and workshops are available throughout the year.
The Harrison Home is located in the Old Northside neighborhood, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
The 190-acre neighborhood features Victorian architecture in restored Queen Anne, Free Classic and Italianate residences.
