Fridays & Saturdays, May through October12 Noon
12th and Central, Indianapolis
See the Indiana Landmarks Center at the former Central Avenue Methodist Church on free public tours each Friday and Saturday, May through October.
45-minute tours highlight the history of the church — once the largest Methodist congregation in the state — including its legacy in Indianapolis. Learn about the church’s decline and the building’s endangered status before a multi-million-dollar restoration transformed it into a spectacular new cultural venue and state headquarters for Indiana Landmarks.
You’ll see the restored public spaces, and go behind the scenes for a look at modern updates that make the nineteenth-century church a twenty-first-century marvel.
Tours begin at 12 Noon in the main lobby of the building. No reservation required, except for groups of 10 or more.
