Gift ensures future of Lafayette's Hann Mansion

7/15/2015


On July 13, the owners of Lafayette’s historic Haan Mansion wrote a new chapter in the landmark’s history, deeding the property to the nonprofit Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art, Inc. The gift by owners and museum founders Bob and Ellie Haan ensures a secure future for the museum’s impressive collection of Indiana art.

 

The Haan Mansion was originally constructed as the Connecticut Pavilion at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. At the fair’s end, Indiana attorney William Potter bought and shipped the 10,900 square-foot home to Lafayette and had it reassembled as a gift for his wife, Fannie. The Haans bought the unique landmark in 1984.

 

Avid art collectors, the couple opened the Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana in 2007, showcasing a collection of more than 100 works by Indiana artists, including examples from the Hoosier Group and the Brown County Art Colony. By gifting the property and launching an endowment campaign, the Haans intend to make sure the mansion and its collection will be preserved, protected and shared for generations.

 

The Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art offers guided tours of the Museum on specific dates in August, September, and October. (check the schedule here.)

 

To reserve tickets or to learn more about the museum, visit www.haanmuseum.org or call 765-418-5321.
