There are so many beautiful historic places to love in Indianapolis, but we all have different favorites, so I put it out to the twitterverse and faceplace for a day to get some inspiration from you the readers, on your favorite bits of Indy history–still present or long gone– so I’m just going to recap for you!

Top mentions:

Home sweet home- for those of us who know our home has a personality and a past as rich as our own...

Individual homes- It’s great that people are so invested in individual homes and how lovely that people would note their own home as a favorite!

Large Round window in Head House, Union Station

Union Station, old City Hall and Crown Hill got a couple of nods (and Gothic Chapel, specifically), but otherwise, it was quite a polyglot! Thanks for playing and go notice the best, brightest and most beautiful Indianapolis has to offer: chances are it’s historic, whatever it is.
