The newest installment of the If These Walls Could Tell series features Angola storyteller Lou Ann Homan presenting the restoration saga of Madison’s Shrewsbury-Windle House on Sunday, February 16, in Indianapolis. Historic Madison, Inc., won the Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration in 2019 for its transformation of the Greek Revival-style house.

Storytelling Arts of Indiana and Indiana Landmarks commissioned Homan’s story, “Through the Eyes of Mary with a Post Script by Ann Windle,” for If These Walls Could Tell, an annual program sponsored by Frank and Katrina Basile. The original storytelling series focuses on a historic place in Indiana and the people who built, lived in, worked at, patronized and restored the landmark.

The performance takes place from 4-5 p.m. in Cook Theater at Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Avenue in Indianapolis. Tickets cost $15 in advance and $20 at the door, and are available online at storytellingarts.org or by calling 317-232-1882.
