Hi Indianapolis History Lovers!

First of all, we want to wish all our readers safe and happy holidays!

Next: we have had issues with a few components of the website (map, log-in) and the elves are hard at work to improve the user experience as soon as possible.

Our goal is to have the kinks ironed out within the next few weeks, so if you don’t see something happening out front, it doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot going on behind the scenes.

In that vein, we may have to pay for an upgrade to the map feature, so if you value having that on the site, now is a great time to consider chipping in to support the work we do.

We are taking a little break for the holidays and gearing up for 2019. We plan to be back by January 9 with a new story plucked from Indianapolis history.

Waverley Bicycles were made by the Indiana Bicycle Company, one of the largest bicycle manufacturers in the USA, in the 1890s. Interested? Stay tuned for my book, which I’ll be working on through 2019.

And in case you missed the news, a book is in the works! I (Tiffany) am working on a book about Indianapolis bicycle history, so if you have any images, stories, references, other aficionados or suggestions, please feel free to share that via our contact form. We get tons of emails, so expect delays, especially after the holidays.

H.I. started as a personal blog to share the neat things I discovered about my adopted city 9.5 years ago today. It has blossomed into a WEBSITE with a pretty large archive of articles, with thanks to the number of contributors over the years–writers, designers, photographers, videographers, advertisers, individual donors and so many more. It’s dangerous to call out names, but I’m going to take a crack at listing those who have made a big difference to HI, and hope I’ll be forgiven if I’ve forgotten anyone. Please let me know, as it is not my intention to omit a major contributor, and there is a human behind this website, flaws and all.

So, here goes…
