Where We're Located

Restored by Indiana Landmarks, the 1841 Huddleston Farmhouse complex gives visitors a glimpse of the daily lives of John and Susannah Huddleston and their 11 children, as well as the travelers who crowded the porches and yard and rented the farmhouse’s two lower-level “travelers’ kitchens” for cooking and sleeping.

Our Eastern Regional Office occupies the upper level of the farmhouse, while the main level depicts the home as the Huddlestons would have furnished it in the 1840s. On the lower level—an English basement that opens on the National Road (U.S. 40)—the National Road Heritage Site exhibits offer modern-day travelers a picture of cross-country travel on the pioneering highway—from the pioneer era to the present.

The Eastern Regional Office staff serves 12 counties, working with individuals and groups to save historic places and offering restoration advice.

The house and interpretive center are open for tours on Fridays, 1-3 p.m., May through October, and by appointment. The farmhouse and barn are also picturesque rental venues for weddings and other special events. Learn more about rentals at Huddleston Farmhouse.
