Indianapolis had its own grand department stores, many of which were established and operated by Jewish business owners, including Wasson’s, Block’s and L. Strauss. These business owners contributed to Indianapolis through their successful companies that bolstered the city’s economy and their legacy as generous citizens who gave back to the community through actions like organizing welfare associations and providing trust funds for charitable organizations.

Jewish Merchants of Downtown Indianapolis exhibit (Jan. 15 – June 4, 2022) expands on the history of these Jewish merchants. The stores played a significant role in offering Indianapolis an innovative shopping experience on par with some of the world’s largest department stores.

Presented by Walter and Joan Wolf.
