Two couples share their experiences revitalizing early and mid-century landmarks in the Indiana Dunes National Park. During an online talk, Pat and Mike Shymanski showcase their restoration of the Oscar & Irene Nelson House, a nineteenth-century log structure hidden in plain sight. Laurie and Steve Snell discuss how they disassembled, moved, and restored the all-steel, prefabricated Jacob Lustron home. Indiana Landmarks staff will also share an overview of architecture throughout the park. A Q&A session follows the talk, which is presented by Indiana Landmarks and the Indiana Dunes National Park.
