It’s been all over the news, so there isn’t much that needs to be said, except: Congratulations! The artists formerly known as Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana are now Indiana Landmarks.
Profound respect and gratitude to the Cook family, who are Hoosier Heroes! What wonderful people and what an enduring, beautiful gift to our state and to posterity.
Looking forward to seeing this project completed, creating an Indiana Landmarks campus, with the Morris-Butler House next door. That Victorian home was central to the first years of  Landmarks’ story. Magic still happens in the world, believe that!

The light streaming through these windows is reminiscent of “The Bat Signal”…maybe we could call it the “Cook Signal”–swooping in for an emergency preservation rescue…
