Lost Landmarks of Indianapolis

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share with Email

Lost Landmarks of Indianapolis is the fourth installment of the Houck photo series, and opens to the public at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center on January 16, 2021. The display explores a question many have asked when they see photographs of old buildings that no longer stand: “Can you believe they tore that down?”

The exhibition focuses on 10 lost landmarks from across the region, representing different kinds of sites, including transportation-related ones like Traction Terminal, institutions like Central State Hospital and commercial sites like the Pembroke Arcade. The exhibit highlights well-known sites like Tomlinson Hall as well as forgotten sites like the area near El Nopal Mexican Market on the city’s eastside, where many Latino residents concentrated until it was cleared for interstate construction.

The photos presented in this exhibit will be supplemented with a collection of oral history interviews from preservationists, planners and community organizers who share the history and present realities of historic preservation in Indianapolis. Visitors can also explore the locations of the lost landmarks highlighted in the exhibition and see what the sites look like today.

The Lost Landmarks of Indianapolis exhibit is scheduled to run through April 17, 2021.
