Pack Horse Librarian Project - Glendale Branch By Mario Morone

July zoning issues at BRVA meeting

By Alan Hague There were about 25 in attendance for the July public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Land Use and Development Committee, held July 25th at 6pm at Northminster Presbyterian Church. There were three items on the agenda, two presentations and one liquor license request (agenda in bold below). 1. 838 East 65th Street, Mark Jones regarding a variance to provide for a five-foot tall freestanding sign and 42-inch tall aluminum picket fence within the right-of-way of 65th Street (15 foot setback required and structures not permitted within the right-of-way). Petition # 2017-DV1-039 Hearing before the Metropolitan Board of Zoning Appeals, Thursday, August 6, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. This proposal was to add a fence and move the current sign to make room for a playground at the future Reggio inspired preschool, The Sapling School, at 65th and Ferguson. The committee requested several changes to the placement of the fence and sign to fit in with the Envision Broad Ripple plan. The committee then voted to support this project. 2. 6367 & 6371 Guilford Avenue, David Kingen regarding changes to the building by removing the fourth floor and embracing a “village-scale” architecture. Petition #2016-CZN-843 / 2016-CVR-843 This project has been before this committee around 6 times. The request is to raze the two houses that encompass the entire block on the southeast corner of 64th and Guilford to construct a new building. In the past, Broad Ripple Knits and AV Systems were in these houses. The committee had previously voted to not support the project. This month a new proposal was made that eliminated the 4th floor of the new building and changed the architecture to use elements of the surrounding area. Following a lengthy discussion and a different mix of committee members present at this meeting, the committee voted by a slim margin to support the project. 3. Committee Discussion/Information Alcoholic Beverage Permit for beer and wine only requested by Just Pop In. Broad Ripple Agreement signed. Hearing July 17, 2017. The next public meeting of the Land Use and Development committee is scheduled for Tuesday, August 22 at 6pm at Northminster Presbyterian Church.

Glendale Branch librarian Tracy Hilton described the inspiration for her Pack Horse Librarian project idea. “About eight years ago, I read Down Cut Shin Creek by Kathi Appelt and Jeanne Cannella Schmitzer and My Librarian is a Camel by Margriet Ruurs. Down Cut Shin Creek is about pack horse librarians delivering books to families in rural Kentucky during the historical Works Progress Administration (WPA) era. I got so excited about the book and I wondered how this could be reinvented to bring into the community to give kids the opportunity to have that in today’s world,” she explained. Communications Specialist Jon Barnes wrote in a recent library press release, “Harkening back to a Depression-era New Deal program that provided library books on horseback to people in rural areas of eastern Kentucky, a new service piloted this fall by the Glendale Branch of The Indianapolis Public Library will offer reading adventures to Washington Township school children in a unique way. “In essence, there are people around the world (foreign countries) doing what the pack horse librarians did. They take books to children in rural areas by camel, elephant and donkey cart. My Librarian is a Camel is a juvenile non-fiction book about this topic. I thought, ‘How can we bring this kind of experience to kids in the local community today?’ This year, when the Indianapolis Library Foundation created a new contest, my manager liked my idea, so I sent my submission in and it moved from that time on,” Mrs. Hilton said. She contemplated how to bring horses into it. “In Indianapolis, we have them on patrol. I asked them if they could participate and be pack horse librarians. We are focusing on the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) mounted horse patrol for the pilot of this this program in photo courtesy of The Indianapolis Public Library Glendale Branch librarian Tracy Hilton created the Glendale service area. The Pack Horse the Pack Horse Librarian Project that begins Librarian Project is about the kids, the this fall. community, the library, the adventure of reading and about bringing all of that together in one innovative program. We are scheduling for this fall onward in the 2017-2018 school year.” Mrs. Hilton combines her prior experience being around animals with education. “I have an equestrian background and I know how neat it is for kids to interact with animals. My elementary school principal organized Wednesday assemblies every week for the entire school and brought in guest speakers. One time the speaker was an antique dealer who brought antique toys and another time was a person who brought a pony to our baseball field and taught horse care. Kids got to handle antique toys and to help groom the pony during those assemblies. I also had a wonderful third grade teacher who took a small group of us to do extra reading projects and that group remained through sixth grade. We read and discussed the books and did projects on those titles.” “Books have always been an inspiration to me. Third grade is the general time when students transition from learning to read into reading to learn. We will focus on this important age group for the pilot. Learning accelerates rapidly once kids are reading to learn. I wanted to help inspire them to read for fun,” she noted. “My background is in the fine arts and I went to a fine arts school because I wanted to write and illustrate children’s books. I ended up working five years in children’s programming (doing summer reading and story time programming as well as community outreach) in Atlanta before moving to Indianapolis,” she added. Tracy Hilton is writing a new chapter promoting reading and education for the Indianapolis Public Library.

Since a “dynamic duo” can be defined as any pair of heroes or would-be heroes, not just Batman and Robin, GENNESARET FREE CLINICS has claimed the phrase to announce its two Hoosier Humanitarian Day headliners. Dr. A. Janelle Goetches has been named recipient of the first Hoosier Humanitarian Day award to be presented August 20, 2017 at the Biltwell event center. A 1964 graduate of the Indiana University School of Medicine, Dr. Goetches’ mission in the District of Columbia has spanned forty years, providing healthcare services to the homeless and indigent. When she founded Christ House in 1985, a 32 bed temporary residential respite care facility for homeless persons, it was the only one of its kind in the nation. It would catch the attention of Dr. James Trippi and serve as the model for establishing GENNESARET FREE CLINICS’ Men’s Health Recovery Program in 2000. “Indiana and my faith in God are my real roots,” Dr. Goetches said in an interview for Medscape General Medicine in 2001. “That’s where my life and where my vocation began.” December 30, 2014, was declared Janelle Goetches, MD Day by the Washington DC City Council in celebration of her life and career. GFC looks forward to similarly recognizing her in August, in Indiana where she grew up. Jill Ditmire, a 1986 graduate of Butler University with a BS in Radio/Television and Journalism/Political Science is a popular broadcast professional, author and columnist (Broad Ripple Gazette), teacher, former retailer and AWS Certified Wine Judge. Ditmire will serve as Honorary Chair and Mistress of Ceremonies for the Hoosier Humanitarian Day - Party with a Purpose: A Salute to Unsung Heroes. GENNESARET FREE CLINICS, the Indianapolis 501-c-3 not for-profit made up of healthcare professionals and other concerned individuals who volunteer talents and training to provide medical, dental and wellness services to the homeless and indigent, created “Hoosier Humanitarian Day” as a way to build awareness of Indiana’s humanitarian needs and providers and to inspire continued help and support in the years to come For more information about how to support GFC’s “Hoosier Humanitarian Day - A Party with a Purpose” contact Tom Fagan, Director of Development, 317639-5645 X204 or

First Congr. Church, United Church of Christ 160th Anniv.

First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ will celebrate its 160th Anniversary on August 20, 2017 with a day-long set of activities that illustrate the heritage and values of the congregation. The day will be structured along the Chautauqua model of adult education, recreation, worship and food. The church was founded as Plymouth Congregational Church in 1857 with the provision that slave owners were ineligible for membership. That social consciousness grew into the church becoming the pre-eminent ‘Social Gospel’ church in Indiana, bring religious beliefs and convictions to the social issues of the day. In a day when most churches addressed only how one could be saved. Plymouth’s ministers preached on the need for a minimum wage and organized vocational education, programs supporting women, and the rights to join unions. IUPUI professor Sheila Kennedy will continue that tradition by addressing the problems of the A.L.I.C.E. segment of Indiana’s population. ‘A.L.I.C.E. refers to those who are Asset Limited, Income Constrained but Employed---the working almost poor who make up 37% of Indiana’s population. Dr. Kennedy’s lecture will begin at 9:45 a.m. After a worship service at 11 a.m. and lunch at noon, spiritual exercises will be offered before turning to indoor and outdoor games. High Tea and birthday cake will be served at 4 p.m., with a closing vesper service held at 4:30 o’clock. The public is invited and may participate in some or all activities.

The background of The Gazette:

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post #3. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and is Assistant Band Director at BRMHS. As a board member of the BRHS Alumni Association, he is an organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1940’s through the 1950’s held the first Sunday each June at Riviera Club. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? When is the BRMHS Homecoming Parade? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the seven Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/ recently opened business or long-time business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you. -Alan Hague

Indiana State Fair Friday, August 4 - Sunday, August 20 Indiana State Fairgrounds 1202 East 38th Street - all-ages, various discounts and promo days, $12 at the gate, $5 parking

Happy Indiana State Fair time! I encourage everyone to make at least one visit to the Fair this year. While the free main stage music and midway are fun, make sure that you visit the 4-H buildings, Indiana Arts Building, animal barns, and Pioneer Village. You’ll see the results of yearlong projects and hard work by students and volunteers. I got a peek at the new skyride over Main Street when I dropped of my projects for the Open Show, it looks very cool, but with my stupid fear of heights I’m not sure that I can do it. Folks tell me it’s not that high (35 feet) or fast (2 mph), but if I can’t reach it from my tiptoes, it’s too tall. If you see someone up there whimpering and clutching the sides of the seat with their eyes screwed shut, there is a good chance that is me. This is the “Wonderful Year of Food” and I’ll admit that I was skeptical at first. After all, every day is a wonderful day of food in my world. The Fair team has found a way to make it fabulous. Not only will each day have a specific food theme, the American Museum of Natural History’s Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture will be located in the Harvest Pavilion. The exhibit explores our complex system that brings the food from the farm to your fork. Sections of the exhibit are devoted to growing, transporting, cooking, eating, tasting, and celebrating. I’m excited about the chance to peek inside the dining rooms of famous historical people and cook a virtual meal - will there by virtual dishes to wash? The Harvest Pavilion is open 9 - 9 daily. Speaking of food at the Fair, did you know there are over 125 food stands? That is a ton of ribeye sandwiches and corn dogs. There are several great spots to take your favorite treat and sit and listen to music. The stage in the Pioneer Village barn always features talented folks playing old-timey and gospel music. The Main Street Stage tends to lean towards pop music and the Free Stage hosts the touring bands. I’ll see you there!

Euchre Euchre is the Great Indiana Card Game. (I hear that it is big in Michigan, too.) This card game has so many moments wrapped up in it, that it remains for me one of life’s great pleasures. I learned Euchre during my first semester at Ball State. (My Freshman Year!) I was the slowest learner of Euchre that I have ever seen. For that reason it made it hard on my partner for that whole semester. If you had me as a partner, it was almost like guaranteeing yourself a loss. But my friends were very patient with me and had kinda like come to the notion that I would always suck at Euchre. But during my second semester at BSU I began becoming much more fluent in the playing of the card game Euchre. I became a strong Euchre partner. I don’t mean to scare anyone from Euchre because it was so hard for me to learn. Euchre is an easy card game to learn. It is a very social game because it is easy to play. This completes my advertisement for Euchre. Oh, and I’d like to dedicate this advertisement to Kyle Andrews (my All-Time Great Euchre Partner)!

Letters to the Editor Note to our readers: Letters to the Editor are the opinions of our readers and not necessarily those of this paper.

Commissioner Kelly Bentley Statement on the closing of Broad Ripple High School July 18, 2017 Forty years ago last month, I had the privilege of walking across the stage at Hilton Brown Theater on the Butler University Campus to receive my diploma from Broad Ripple High School. It was the culmination of a wonderful high school experience with inspiring teachers, amazing lifelong friends, and an exceptional learning environment. Ten years ago, my son Robert, also experienced what it is like to graduate as a Rocket. Our daughter Sarah also attended Broad Ripple High School and was a Rocket for three years. We were and are a very proud IPS family. The past month has seen a groundswell of emotion regarding Broad Ripple High School— and I want all of you to know that when it comes to the joy and pride of being a Broad Ripple student and parent, I share every word and every sentiment and every emotion. I do not minimize at all--not for one minute—the love many people feel for the school and the memories we all hold so dear. Space does not permit me to list all the people and all the ways that the Broad Ripple education community has shaped my life. In all honesty, I doubt that I would be sitting here, as an IPS Commissioner, without the encouragement and education I received those forty years ago at Broad Ripple High School. In my role as commissioner, however, I must put the interests of the entire District ahead of everything else. Empathy and sympathy have their place, but fiduciary responsibility must come first. All of us who have been studying and wrestling with the crippling problem of having too many high schools for too few students know that neighborhoods and families will be affected by these changes. We know it, and we are listening. Emotions and memories aside, there is simply no way that our school District can continue to grow and fund critical needs such as increased teacher compensation, state-of-the-art technology, and expanded course offerings while maintaining a 37 percent occupancy rate in our high schools. It is 2017 and in an environment of reduced funding from the state and federal government, and with less than 25 percent of the students we had a generation ago, I cannot allow sentiment to overrule my duty—not only to the District today, but our leadership and our students in the future. We must use our scarce resources to support the education of the students we have rather than buildings we don’t need. The motto of Broad Ripple High School is Broader Richer Human Service. This will live on in my heart forever and the hearts of thousands of Alumni who have walked across that stage and gone on to give so much to their communities, their city, their state, and their Country. Go Rockets!

Rivi gets a remodel




olm lc


The Rivi has been remodeled. Per the General Manager Matt Giles: “The Levee project bought some of our land rather than take it by eminent domain and so we used those funds to relocate what amenities we were losing to the sale of land and in the process gave The Rivi an updated look with a nostalgic nod to keep its 84 year history alive. Brand new are what we commonly referred to as The Rivi Park. It encompasses new tennis courts, a basketball/multipurpose court, an 80 x 30 foot shelter, new playground, refurnished outdoor shuffleboard courts and a new parking lot with islands that house nice trees. We’ve done many other updates including a make-over in our Snack Shack, outdoor bathrooms, and pool deck furnishings. All in all, we’ve put back into Rivi close to $1 million with a focus on safety, cleanliness and member services.” Thanks for reader Shirley Fry for this news tip.

State Fair train tracks—safe or unsafe?

A reader commented that the reason there is no State Fair Train this year is that the train tracks are unsafe. (See Letter to the Editor page 12 in this issue) The Indiana Transportation Museum—which operates the train—disagrees. According to their new Chair, John Nichols: “As far as the tracks being ‘safe,’ the Federal Railroad Administration inspected the track, signals, operations, and equipment and found NO safety violations last April. The HHPA (Hoosier Heritage Passenger Rail Authority), who are lay appointees, made that statement…… After the Fishers and Noblesville announcement to rip up the rails, it becomes more clear what their motives are. The ITM has filed a Tort Claim in Federal Court. The process is to give a government entity an opportunity to resolve the issue in lieu of further legal action. However, they seem to be continuing in the same direction. More legal action is planned.” See Save the Nickel Plate (the name for the railroad that runs trains from the museum in Noblesville) for more on their side on Facebook.

Also, I stand by my view that the Noblesville-Fishers-Indianapolis tracks (which run all the way to 10th Street downtown Indianapolis) would be an ideal commuter rail corridor so tearing them out is a bad idea although obviously the economics need further study.

Broad Ripple Park Pool Re-Opens

The Broad Ripple Park re-opened on July 24 (after being closed since June 21 for a pump outage). The pool closes for the season on August 6. If you are interested in approaching the Friends of Broad Ripple Park to support the pool (and a longer season), please email me.

White River Floodwall Update

Jim Polito of Save the Warfleigh forwarded this update from the City of Indianapolis on the flood wall project: RE- Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project Phase 3B3 updates The City indicates the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers intended to release in April of this year a bid for construction of the final phase of the project: -- Did the Corps release a request for proposal/bids? The USACE (Army Corps of Engineers) did release the project for bid earlier this year. -- If so, has any proposal/bid been awarded/accepted? The USACE received bids but those bids remain in review by the USACE. USACE has not notified the City that a bid has been awarded…. -- If so, when may we expect construction on this phase of the project to begin and terminate? The USACE has proposed since 2016 to award Phase 3B3 and begin construction activities in 2017. The USACE has also stated that Construction activities would take place into early 2019. -- Any other meaningful project updates/progress/milestones that I may share? The Contractor for Phase 3B2 (at the Riviera Club site) has begun excavation for the inspection trench for the earthen levee. They are preparing the borrow site to begin moving clay soils to the site for construction. The contractor completing the Phase 3A&3C vegetation management project has begun seeding graded banks and rip-rap restoration of areas of the riverbank. He has also begun work on the canoe launch site downstream of the Kessler Blvd. Bridge. Weather has caused delays and the contractor proposes to complete the majority of the work by mid-September. Weather could delay the project completion later into the year. On a related note, the City, Town of Rocky Ripple and Butler University working within the articles of the MOA are preparing to begin the geotech assessment of the existing Rocky Ripple levee. The local flood damage reduction project preliminary engineering effort is scheduled to be completed in February 2018. For further updates go to

Letters to the Editor Note to our readers: Letters to the Editor are the opinions of our readers and not necessarily those of this paper.

Mr. Malcolm, I read with interest your recent “Round the Ripple” column and the news about the State Fair train not operating again this year. Your assertion that this is due to the plan by Noblesville and Fishers to abandon the tracks the train runs on for a bike rail trail failed to inform readers of the full reason. As you well know, the Hoosier Heritage Port Authority grounded the train last year – and will do so again this year - because it said the tracks were unsafe. If you believe the real reason to be other than that, then argue that. Furthermore, your desire – and that of other train buffs – to use the tracks for a future commuter train line between Noblesville and downtown Indianapolis is based on a hope and perhaps a prayer but little else. Ever since this debate began, proponents of the train-for-commuting idea have not provided any meaningful costs for such a plan, nor any projections on how many commuters would take advantage of it or what it would cost them to ride it. Complying with federal regulations on commuter rail systems (CFR Title 49, Subtitle B, Chapter II) is and would be both cumbersome and costly, much more so than the rules that apply to rapid bus transit programs. While you are certainly free to express your opinions in the column, your readers would be better served if the opinions were at least premised on intellectually honest claims supported by facts. Respectfully, Brent Bahler

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Let’s start with the easy puzzle. We will try to put an 1 in the left section of the bottom row that contains 2-4-5-6-7. The 1 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces on both sides of the 4. The 1 in the right section of the bottom row eliminates the space to the right of the 7. The only place left is between the 2-5. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Did you hear that sound? A WHOOP of glee from Nora as the 2017 Indiana State Fair opens on Friday and celebrates 16 glorious days of the best of Indiana Agriculture in a very culture minded way this year. This year’s theme is the Wonderful World of Food so each day has a specific “food homage”– starting with deep fried on August 4th and includes days celebrating “on a stick” “funnel cakes” and honey. August 13th is “ice cream” and that day includes a brain freezing ice cream eating contest. Yum. Once again Indiana wine, beer and spirits will be available daily in the Grand Hall. Just a few feet away is the new WFYI stage featuring local arts and science discussions plus local musicians on August 10th and Indy Shakes actors and Indianapolis Jazz Festival musicians on August 14th. Let’s all give Nora a run for the money and see how many days we can also enjoy the one and only offerings at the Indiana State Fair.

California Wines Indiana Cause Wine tastings are always a terrific way to sample new wines. When you combine something enjoyable for you, that ALSO benefits can you pass that up? You can sample a slew of wines from some of the most established and up and coming wineries in California on Sunday August 20th at the Biltwell Center in downtown Indianapolis. The new Prophecy wine label includes wines from around the world but its Pinot Noir is made from California grapes and it is a spot on example of the California style of handling the French grape. Enjoy lots of fresh, ripe red fruit, and a touch of warm spice in this easy drinking dry red. The Prophecy wine labels are as pleasing to the eye as the juice inside the bottles are to the palate. They are widely available and affordably priced. The wine event benefits the Gennesaret Clinics–which offer free dental and medical services to thousands of Marion county residents, men, women and children, who would otherwise go without because they are either homeless or don’t have the resources or money to stay healthy. The staff and volunteers that make these clinics work are as extraordinary as the collection of wines you will get to sample at their fundraising event on August 20th. Broad Ripple’s own Cork+Cracker is handling the retail sales at the event, offering great discounts on bottles and giving part of the profit from sales that night to the Gennesaret Clinics. In addition to California wine, there will be California cuisine, and the chance to win a trip TO California wine country. I will be there pouring wine and answering questions. More information at

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter That Place We Call ‘Fairgrounds’ My early childhood home was just south of the Indiana State Fairgrounds so the State Fair has always been part of my life. Now, every day I pass it going to work and look forward to attending the Fair each year. I wager that most of us think first of all that happens when the Fair is on, but the Fairgrounds can also offer a leisurely architectural tour at non-activity times. The Indiana State Fair is full of history and long-standing traditions. The Fair’s original purpose was to allow Indiana’s farmers to get together to share ideas, view the most current farming techniques, and display their products. In 1852, Indiana’s first State Fair took place in what is now known as Military Park in downtown Indianapolis. Early state fairs were hosted in Lafayette (1853), Madison (1854), New Albany (1859), Ft. Wayne (1865), and Terre Haute (1867). In 1892, the Fair moved to its current location at East 38th Street and Fall Creek Parkway. So let’s take a drive. When entering the grounds from Fall Creek you will pass: • Communications Building (1947) - Glass block was a new building material and architect Dan Zimmerman used a great deal of it to make the Communications Building look as modern as possible. The hand-carved Indiana limestone medallions (roundels) show different Fair events. • Service Building (1952) - I remember the Red Cross being located in this building on the left as you enter. • Swine Barn (1923) - The Fair Board envisioned this brick, steel, and tile building with concrete floors as a Hog Palace; its Arts and Craft style was quite grand when built.. • Horse Barn (1925) - Now East Pavilion - 1975 • Coliseum (1939) - This is designed in the manner of Art Deco and recently went through a major renovation. • Cattle Barn (Now the West Pavilion) (c.1924) - This was designed using the same technology used in making metal bridges of the time • Home & Family Arts Building (1919) - The tall, classical arches of this building recall the classically styled libraries, courthouses, and town halls of fair goers. • Poultry Building (1927) - a pavilion with an English Tudor look. • Exposition Hall (1919) - The interior is covered by a wide span metal truss roof. • Better Babies Building (1928) - The bungalow house originally was used for information and exhibits about infant health. Later the State Board of Health used the building for exhibits. In 1966, it was remodeled into an old-fashioned Hook’s drug store. • The Lincoln Theater (1932) - Art Deco style building, also is designed with some influence from German modernistic architecture. • Agriculture & Horticulture Building (1921) - The classical style of this building has a different twist, its tiled roof and stuccoed walls imitated Italian-style buildings, or, generically, architecture of the Mediterranean area. • 4-H Dormitories & Exhibit Hall (1939) - The design is a simple Art Deco or Art Moderne theme. During World War II, when many fairgrounds buildings were used by the Army as a supply and marshaling center, these buildings were used as barracks. • The Fairgrounds Track (1892) - There was enough room on the present site to build a regulation mile long oval track in 1892, the track, with several re-engineering efforts, has remained essentially where it is today. A ½ mile track was added inside the bigger oval in 1902. There are many more buildings to admire on the grounds: DNR Building (1950), Sheep Barn (1925 and alterations - 1955), Normandy Barn, Covered Bridge, 2008, and newly renovated horse barns. You could spend an afternoon walking the grounds just taking in all the architecture. The DNR has a good website that can take you through the grounds so you can gain a vibrant appreciation for all the history which is the backdrop of the Indiana State Fair. historic/4008.htm It is my wish that all of you who read this article and attend an event at the State Fairgrounds will appreciate the historical architecture that spans from the 1890’s through present day.
