Mrs. John N. Carey was attending a convention of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) in Washington, D. C. when she noticed something: many states’ delegates represented within the organization had banners displayed in the NSDAR auditorium. Indiana was not among them. Mrs. Carey determined that she would help remedy this issue, as she would in many other instances throughout her life. Marie Stewart Carey turned numerous ideas into reality for Indiana and Indianapolis. She was a founder of the Orchard School in 1922–it began on her property; In 1925, she founded The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis–housed inside her former home for a number of years; and she was active with and donated to numerous local organizations focused on improving the city.
