5 to 7 p.m.
3202 N. Meridian Street, Indianapolis
Tour the Glossbrenner House, a grand mansion on Indianapolis’s Meridian Street, before we put it on the market.
Built between 1908 and 1910 for the Alfred Glossbrenner family, the Jacobethan Revival-style house retains lavish details throughout: limestone mantlepieces with carved inscriptions, original light fixtures, leaded glass, carved woodwork and built-ins.
In the last half of the twentieth century, physician Joseph Walther installed his medical office in the house, and later the Walther Cancer Foundation, leaving the historic features largely unchanged. The foundation donated the Glossbrenner House to Indiana Landmarks to ensure its preservation. We’ve partially restored the house with support from the Efroymson Family Fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation.
We’ll sell the 7,500 square-foot house with our protective covenants and put the proceeds in our Endangered Places Fund.
The open house is free, but requires your RSVP.
