Exuberant, vintage wearing, world-traveling, quirky idea machine and creator/ Chief Inspiration Officer of Historic Indianapolis.com, Tiffany Benedict Browne hated high school history. After spending her formative years in exotic locales such as Exeter and Visalia, California; Schenectady, New York; and summer visits to Indianapolis, Indiana, Tiffany acquired a taste for the cosmopolitan (Grey Goose preferred, if you please). Enduring the following few years living in sleepy hamlets like Barcelona, Spain; London, England; and Los Angeles, California, she learned to love history and all things ‘olde’ with a wonderment that continues to imbue her every day with deeper meaning. The determination to one day own a Queen Anne, coupled with a personal loss, inspired the impetuous decision to relocate to Indianapolis in pursuit of her next adventure.
HI is anchored by a team of writers and contributors that all share a passion for Indianapolis and Central Indiana.
