Saint Mary-of-the-Woods Historic District represents a large collection of architectural design by Bohlen and Son, based in Indianapolis.
Curated from lofty attics to basement crypts, “Stories” will present vignettes of history showcased through architectural drawings, photographs and original design elements from the historic district, building connection to our own lives and to the value of preservation.
The exhibit has been made possible through a Historic Preservation Education Grant from Indiana Landmarks, Indiana Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and by the Vigo County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
