Preservation Underground
Not many of Indianapolis’s denizens are aware of the yawning subterranean chamber right under their feet at the corner of Delaware and Market. But Indiana Landmarks and Indianapolis’s City Market are trying to change that.

 
Our bi-weekly tours of the City Market Catacombs highlight the fascinating history of mysterious cellars.
National distinction
The Duck Creek aqueduct in Metamora recently earned designation as a National Historic Landmark, one of only 39 Hoosier sites to earn the status.

 
Built in 1846 as part of the Whitewater Canal, it is the only surviving historic covered wood aqueduct in the United States.
Greyhound turns black
When we removed the blue-enameled steel panels from Evansville’s Greyhound Station and sent them off for restoration, it left behind naked red brick that soon turned black. Cause for legitimate alarm? Fear not, the exterior panels will soon return.

 
The color comes from a membrane that acts as a vapor barrier and stabilizer for the deteriorated brick and mortar uncovered when the metal panels were removed for restoration.
Landmark for sale

Largely un-changed since the late 1800s, the Rumpe House in Rising Sun is a fascinating time-capsule of nineteenth-century Indiana. And it’s for sale.



 
Indiana Landmarks rescued the Rumpe House in 2013 to save it from demolition.
