NOT TO MISS Indiana’s top events this season

The year may be winding down, but a fun-filled roster of seasonal destinations, events and activities sprinkled all across the state promises to help Hoosiers send off the year with a bang.

Brown County State Park Brown County puts on quite a show as the fall leaves shift from green into shades of gold, orange, red and brown. Driving through Indiana’s biggest state park to ogle the gorgeous fall foliage is one of the most quintessential Hoosier experiences you can get. Be prepared for traffic on the 20 miles of road that wind through the park during peak color weekends in late October. browncountystatepark.com

traveliN HOLIDAY 2014

Apple orchards and pumpkin patches

12

Indiana abounds with the flavors of fall, primarily apple and pumpkin, available at a number of quaint orchards and pumpkin patches. Two of the best include the Conner Prairie Apple Store, open Tuesday through Sunday until Oct. 31, and the Indiana Transportation Museum’s Hamilton Harvest Train, running round trips from Fishers Saturdays and Sundays in October. connerprairie.org

Covered Bridge Festival Parke County celebrates a picturesque collection of 31 covered bridges with an annual festival that traditionally begins the second Friday in October, this year Oct. 10 through 19. As if the charming bridges themselves aren’t reason enough to visit, the countywide event also includes food, craft vendors and live music throughout a handful of sweet communities to explore. coveredbridges.com

Wine Trails Pick a wine trail, any wine trail… Indiana’s full of them, and fall is the perfect time of year to spend a day or weekend following one of these leisurely, scenic paths. The Hoosier Wine Trail, the Indiana Uplands, the Indiana Wine Trail, the Indy Wine Trail and the Wine Tour — Wineries of Indiana’s Northeast all provide stellar opportunities to sample tasty Hoosiermade varietals. indianawines.org


The Hilly Hundred Sponsored by the Central Indiana Bicycling Association, Inc., the 47th annual Hilly Hundred bike tour rolls through the stunning fall terrain of south-central Indiana Oct. 10 to 12, drawing more than 5,000 cyclists from 40 states (and several countries), all intent on covering 50 miles a day on two wheels. Events throughout the weekend include parking lot games and live entertainment. hillyhundred.org

Polar Express

Pokagon State Park

Whether you’re a die-hard Fighting Irish fan, a true-blue Boilermaker, or a hardcore Hoosier, tailgating is one of Indiana’s favorite fall pastimes. Pack a cooler, throw on a jersey and cheer for a home team — Indiana offers plenty of them to root for, from the NFL Indianapolis Colts to a slew of college squads. Touchdown!

Winter sport thrill seekers flock north to Pokagon to fly down the park’s quartermile refrigerated toboggan run at speeds that top out around 40 miles per hour. The run stays open weekends and for extended hours during the holidays each year from the Friday after Thanksgiving through February. tobogganrun.com

Exploration Acres Bring the whole family and get lost in northwest Indiana’s largest corn maze — 18 acres and 8 miles long, to be exact — at this popular seasonal attraction near Lafayette. Other activities take in pedal car races, pony rides, picnic sites, hayrides, a pumpkin patch and other fall fun. explorationacres.com

Performing Arts Get cultured this season with a slate of dance, music, theater and opera performances going on around the state at world-class venues like the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, IU Auditorium and Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington, Ball State’s Emens Auditorium, Clowes Memorial Hall on the Butler University campus, and Wabash’s Honeywell Center, to name just a few.

Indiana antique malls are a perfect gift destination

BY NICK KAPSA VARE

Photography by Josh Marshall

Many people flock to stores in the early hours of the morning on Black Friday for great deals on the hottest new gifts. For Denise Pence, co-owner of the Bloomington Antique Mall and Edinburgh’s Exit 76 Antique Mall, the holidays aren’t just for shiny new toys or technology. She knows shopping at antique malls is an inexpensive and creative way to find the perfect gift and often leads to incredible discoveries one won’t find at any department store. “Quality antiques aren’t dusty forgotten objects. They are unique products with character and quality that you can’t find anywhere else,” she says. According to Pence, one of the joys of giving antiques as gifts are the personal touches they often include, especially if the piece is repurposed or restored. “The phrase ‘repurpose, restore, recycle’ takes on a special meaning,” Denise says, “when you use an antique item as a raw material to make something of your very own.” What was once an everyday object from some bygone era can be transformed into something out of the ordinary.

Denise should know. She discovered a cake-cutting knife at an antique shop and decided to buy it as a wedding gift. After a quick polish, it was transformed from a tarnished old piece of cutlery on an antique store shelf to a special heirloom for the newlyweds. Antique repurposing isn’t just limited to gift giving — especially during the holidays. Regular household items, with a little reworking, can be transformed into cheery holiday décor. Old train sets, dolls, cookie cutters and ice skates make fun, festive decorations. Even items as mundane as hats and mittens can help create a cozy winter atmosphere in your home. At Denise’s antique malls and many other antique vendors across the state, shelves are lined with opportunities for customers looking for holiday repurposing projects. The Bloomington Antique Mall is itself a story of repurposing, says Denise. In 2009, the building that would house their future store was just an old and forgotten warehouse on the downtown square slated to be transitioned into condos. That’s when

Denise’s husband, Gregory Pence, happened to see a sign on the building during a run. He inquired, toured the interior and fell in love with the space. The couple eventually purchased the building, and within a few short weeks had it transformed once again into a treasure trove of antiques. Antique shopping is a growing attraction in Indiana as people realize the potential of repurposing antiques. The trend is a good opportunity to purchase a slice of genuine Indiana heritage. “Some vendors at antique malls have found these treasures when they inherited their older relatives’ items,” Denise says. “Today’s baby boomers are inheriting their

antique shoppers quickly become experts at repurposing. Whether you are looking for a centerpiece to grace the Thanksgiving dinner table, a piece of vintage jewelry to enhance a holiday party dress or special serving dishes for a New Year’s Eve party, you’re sure to find something at one of Indiana’s many antique malls. “Antiques bring a character, a pop, an eclectic, memorable flair to a home or gift. They make it special,” Denise says. “Something old becomes something new and modern when you discover an antique and add your own style of creativity.”

Sweeten up holiday shopping Candy-coat chilly days with Indiana chocolates

BLU Boy Chocolate

BY NICK KAPSA VARE

Indiana’s special chocolatiers offer sweet treats any time of year, but nothing tastes sweeter than a luscious box of caramel turtles, chocolate-drizzled pretzels, or a warming mug of hot cocoa when temperatures begin to cool down. Chocolate connoisseurs will find a unique range of delicious candies and confections throughout the state, and many companies even offer tours allowing visitors to experience the creation of their favorite treats firsthand.

MADE FROM SCRATCH Unique confections, hand-painted chocolates, French-style truffles.

BLU Boy Chocolate Cafe and Cakery » At the BLU Boy Chocolate Cafe and Cakery, a chocolate boutique located inside the historic Buskirk-Chumley theater building in Bloomington, visitors can select each chocolate to create their own box of assorted confections. Each chocolate is made from scratch and many feature local ingredients. From traditional butter caramel or peppermint to adventurous ancho chile or jasmine, each personalized box can be a thoughtful, delicious gift. “I often compare the creation of our chocolates to making a mixed music playlist for a friend. You chose all your favorites … and then you present your collection to that someone special hoping they love it as much as you do,” says David Fletcher, owner and chocolatier. (812) 334-8460 112 E.

Fair Oaks focuses on

traveliN HOLIDAY 2014

New Farmhouse Restaurant Offers Farm-to-Fork Flair

The menu at Farmhouse includes typical Indiana meats and vegetables – chicken, ribs, meatloaf, country fried steak, tomato salad – cooked up under the direction of well-trained chefs. BY KEVIN HOWELL The taste though, is not what some would call typical. Everything on their menu is created on site, from scratch. Brent Brashier, general manager Brashier says one of their most popular of Farmhouse Restaurant, Fair Oaks Farms’ items is the bacon sampler. It’s an appetizer newest addition in northwest Indiana, with thick portions of cured pork belly in touts his menu as basic farm cuisine. a variety of flavors. “Because it’s our own But that description is vastly pork, we cure our own bacon three ways understated once you sit down to a – applewood smoked, hickory smoked and plateful of the restaurant’s locally black peppercorn - each with three sauces.” produced, freshly picked farm fare. The restaurant menu also features Farmhouse Restaurant, located just off a tomato salad made with heirloom I-65 at the State Road 14 exit, opened in brandywine tomatoes. This appetizer early July this year. showcases the farm’s The restaurant is other offerings, as housed in an extensive well, as the tomatoes building and includes are shingled across a a conference center, plate with Fair Oaks several banquet rooms mozzarella cheese and 754 N 600 E and five dining areas basil that is fresh-picked.

The Farmhouse Restaurant


“The only thing that doesn’t come from the farm is the olive oil,” he says. Other dishes include spicy jalapeño cornbread and carrot cake. Most of the ingredients used by the chefs are either grown on the farm or come from local sources. Even the pickles are homemade from local cucumbers. “I’ve challenged the chefs with the pickles,” Brashier says. “Sauerkraut is next on the list.” In the kitchen, a nearby farmer is dropping off the day’s vegetables– tomatoes, potatoes, cabbages, broccoli and whatever else was fresh that day. “This all came out of the ground this morning – it goes into our coleslaw, we’re going to do some broccoli cheese soup, and we have broccoli in our sautéed vegetables,” Brashier says.

“It doesn’t get any more farm fresh than this,” he says. “You can cook it anyway you want, but it never tastes as good as when it comes right out of the ground.” An added source of entertainment for customers is the glass wall in the main dining room for guests to view the kitchen staff at work. Diners are able to see where the food comes from and how it is prepared. What isn’t produced by the farm for the table yet, will be in the near future, says Brashier. In adjoining fields outside the restaurant are young orchards, berry vines and vegetable gardens. According to Fair Oaks Farm director Aimee Loyd, a farm market and bakery next door to the restaurant is under construction and scheduled to open in the fall. The market and bakery will offer a variety of products local to Indiana and the Midwest.

“Our produce will come from our farm and orchard located on Fair Oaks Farms,” says Loyd, “and we will supplement our lineup with produce from local farmers. The lineup will include Fair Oaks Dairy products like cheeses and ice creams, pork, beef, chicken products and prepared salads. “Our Bakery will also be baking delicious cakes, pies, cookies, muffins and breads - sticky buns to start,” Loyd says.  The Farmhouse Restaurant and the planned market are part of Fair Oaks Farm’s concept of connecting farm fresh products and goods with consumers.  The farm has been delving into this idea for two decades. Tours of the farm’s dairy, pig barn and orchards have been offered since the ‘90s. The culmination of Fair Oaks years of work are represented in the owners’ new Farmhouse Restaurant, where basic farm cuisine has evolved into gourmet offerings.

Experience The French Lick Artisan Trail traveliN HOLIDAY 2014

BY KEVIN HOWELL

A

few years ago artists in the historic resort area of French Lick and Orange County were looking for ways to display their local talents. Taking a hint from Brown County, an area rich with local artisans, the French Lick Artisan Trail was created. Visitors to the trail get an intimate look at crafters and artists in many different settings and get to explore a treasure trove of Indiana creative residents. In business for 53 years, Hinshaw Rock’N Gems is owned by Merrill and Janis Hinshaw and daughter Kim Pearson. The Hinshaw family has collected rocks from all over the country. Merrill Hinshaw is a self-taught lapidarist (precious stone cutter and polisher) and silversmith, so the stones are cut and polished by hand. The shop is filled with unique and tasteful artworks created by the hands of the Hinshaws as well as many other local artisans. Hinshaw’s is the most remote site along the trail, located on a secluded county road among the hills and valleys outside French Lick. There are three other stops along the trail with plans to expand that number in the future.

Pearson noted that one stop, French Lick Artisan Co-op, serves as the group’s 501c3 non-profit art education center. A big component of the Trail’s concept is to offer art lessons and demonstrations for individuals and groups, she says.

“They average between 25 to 30 artists,” says Pearson, who also serves as an organizer for the Trail. “They are regional and local artists, and they have everything from pottery, woodworking, photography, leather, painting, drawing, metal sculpture, handmade dolls. We also offer classes by the artists.” Another stop on the Trail features the unique artistry of chainsaw carving. Bear Hollow Wood Carvers features chainsaw sculptures by award-winning carver Jason Emmons and others. Also on display are personalized signs, frames and jewelry along with local hand-crafted bowls, cutting boards, toy and carving supplies. Travel down to West Baden and you’ll run into the French Lick Winery. This stop on the Artisan Trail features more than 20 varieties of locally made wines as well as homemade fudge, authentic Italian food in the Vintage Café, an observation area and gift shop. Travelers on the Artisan Trail can pick up a special punch card at any of the stops and collect a prize for visiting all four.

Celebrating Indiana’s Museums BY TIFFANY HATFIELD Executive Director, Association of Indiana Museums indianamuseums.org

This news may come as a surprise, but it’s a source of Hoosier pride: Indiana so values its heritage and culture that it contains over 500 museums, cares for at least 10.5 million artifacts, and serves over 9 million visitors – each year. Many Indiana museums are small, local, operated by dedicated volunteers or a small staff, the people dedicated to saving for future

generations that which makes their place unique and beautiful. Another significant number of Indiana museums have grown to serve the public on a regional, national and international level. All of these can be found with a few clicks of a Google search. Memberships in your favorite Indiana museums grant significant discounts for families and groups. Within one museum you’ll find

Indiana museums celebrate the people and stories of art and artists; history and the people who made it; an entire globe’s worth

of distinct and diverse people coming to and from Indiana; and the scientific wonders of everything from fossils to space travel. Close engagement by visitors takes many forms. Sometimes you get your hands dirty. Sometimes you connect with people in a new way. Sometimes you connect with a

work of art, or artifact of history, staring at it or reading about it for a while, to take it all in and refresh your perspective on life. Sometimes all that happens in the same day! Personally, I can’t bring myself to point you to one over the other. Now in my third decade working with the people who bring you Indiana’s museums (most of them behind the scenes), I know you’ll find stories and playtime and insight and beauty and fascination everywhere. Go for it!

Before you visit your family and friends during the holiday season, visit the annual Enchanted Luminaria Walk at Minnetrista. On December 5 and 6, from 6 to 9 p.m., the 40-acre Minnetrista campus is transformed into an enchanted winter wonderland. Stroll along historic Minnetrista Boulevard under the winter sky and shining stars. Visit Ball family homes, including the holiday-adorned G. A. Ball home, also known as Oakhurst, where the first canning recipes for the Ball Blue Book were developed. The Enchanted Luminaria Walk at Minnetrista has grown over the last 20 years from a small, but magical, holiday event to a much-anticipated gala spread throughout Minnetris-

ta’s campus. Planning for the first “Enchanted Gardens: A Luminaria Walk at Oakhurst Gardens” began right after the George A. Ball home and Oakhurst Gardens opened to the public in May 1995. Minnetrista exhibit galleries, gardens, grounds and homes are open to the community for this special holiday celebration. Thousands of luminarias line pathways meandering around and down Minnetrista Boulevard. Enjoy musical performances, theatrical performances, carriage rides, train rides, fire-pit warming stations and special appearances from Gingy the gingerbread man.

Enchanted Luminaria Walk at Minnetrista is not just an outdoor experience. Warm up in the Minnetrista Center Building where kids can enjoy activities, gallery exhibits and crafts. Make sure you take time to explore the wares of the Luminartists, local artisans who create holiday art, primitives and decorations. While you’re exploring the holiday sights and sounds, don’t forget to stop by The Orchard Shop. The shop will be open late, offering unique décor and gifts for everyone on your holiday shopping list.

Gallery News David Owsley Museum of Art reopens after major expansion

W

ith more space and a new interpretation of the collection, the David Owsley Museum of Art on the Ball State University campus has reopened after an expansion that increased the galleries by nearly 50 percent. The renovation, costing in excess of $4 million, adds four new galleries at the east and west ends of the Fine Arts Building. The new east wing is home to the Asian Galleries, which feature Indian, Chinese and Japanese art. The west wing houses art from Africa and Pacific Island cultures and art from Native American, Meso-American, and South American cultures. The expansion allows gallery space for these world cultures to

nearly triple in size from 1,300 square feet to 3,700 square feet. “We are known for our excellent collection of American and European art,” Interim Director Carl Schafer says. “The expansion allows us equal exhibition space for non-Western works of art.” The diversity of non-Western art at the museum has been made possible in large part by David T. Owsley, the grandson of Frank C. Ball, who was instrumental in founding the museum in the 1930s. Owsley is an art historian and active

collector. He began making gifts to the museum in the 1960s and since then has provided more than 2,300 works of art to the collection. His curiosity and his generosity can be seen throughout the museum that bears his name.

Indiana ranks 11th in the nation when it comes to growing Christmas trees, with more than 200 tree farms that produce more than 200,000 trees annually. This makes the Hoosier State a great place to find a fresh tree for the holiday season. The Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association is an excellent resource for finding a tree farm close to home. Most farms open the day after Thanksgiving. It’s usually one of their busiest weekends. Tom and Kerry Dull, owners of Dull’s Tree Farm in Boone County, expanded their farm from corn and soybeans to Christmas trees in 1985. “Our philosophy is that we aren’t selling the tree, but instead the family experience of going, finding and cutting a tree together,” Kerry says. “People are missing out if they don’t do it.” Purchasing a live tree also helps the local economy and the environment because the tree can be recycled at the end of the season.

Lift your glass high and celebrate with these seasonal Indiana brews BY AMY LYNCH

As temperatures begin to drop, it’s a perfect time to pick up a seasonal brew to sip in front of a roaring fire or share a pint or two with friends. Say ‘cheers’ to cooler weather with one of these Indiana craft beers in your hand.

Bloomington Brewing Co.

Bier Brewery fans know that fall means one thing — pumpkin ale. According to brewer Darren Connor, this recipe drinks down like liquid pumpkin pie. Prepare to wait in line if you want to fill a growler because this highly coveted brew brings out crowds of customers each time it’s released. Connor makes several batches throughout the season, and then turns his attention to holiday brews like chocolate mint stout and a heavy sipper the brewery calls “Sanitarium,” an awardwinning Belgian Quadruple that ages from the previous January until its annual December release.

Each September, Bloomington Brewing Co. brewers put Indiana’s indigenous fall fruit to creative use by producing BBC Persimmon Ale, made with local wild-harvested persimmons and a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg. The sweet yet tart result makes it debut late October in 22 oz. bottles and on tap. As the holidays roll in, BBC celebrates Krampus — a terrifying German legend about a beastly anti-Santa who snatches naughty children — with a bold, dark ale that calls to mind an imperial black IPA. Catch it while you can; this gutsy brew is only around for a short run during the holidays.

Hunter’s Brewing Perfect for tailgating or standing around a bonfire on chilly fall nights, a pint of fruity Gala Harvest English ale from this Chesterton-based nanobrewery teases the tastebuds with the flavors of fresh apple pie, made from Indiana-grown apples. For somewhat more traditional tastes, Chesterton Kind, a double pale ale, showcases locally grown hops harvested in early September with a unique flavor profile similar to green tea. Hunter’s Brewing 1535 S Calumet Rd. Chesterton (219) 728-6729 huntersbrewing.com


People’s Brewing Company

Power House Brewing Co.

Indiana City Brewing Co., a new addition to the Indianapolis brewing community, is making its mark by producing bold, brash seasonal brews. The brewery offers its signature Autumn’s Brown Ale along with two bourbon barrel-aged options — oaky Haymaker and Mimi’s Tabernacle, a heady variation on the brewery’s breakfast stout loaded with maple syrup, chocolate, oats and coffee. Later in the season look for Indiana City’s earthy pumpkin ale and a cinnamon and spice-laden English strong ale called Cratchit’s, released just in time for the holidays.

People’s roster of fall and holiday seasonals this year take full advantage of Indiana’s local food producers. Hearty Harvest Pale Ale is brewed with locally grown wet hops from HopKnoxious Farmers and the rich, spicy Gourdon Pumpkin Ale is created using Indiana pumpkins from County Line Orchard in Hobart. Christmas comes early for craft beer fans when the brewers make merry with their annual release of Ardelle Christmas Barleywine on December 1. New this year, People’s brewers will celebrate the brewery’s fifth anniversary this year with a special IPA to be released Dec. 17.

Beyond Power House’s core lineup of tweaked traditional style beers, brewer Jon Myers says the upcoming offerings will include a wheat beer made with hibiscus flowers, a wet-hopped Giant Fighting Robot Harvest Ale and a peaty, smoke-tinged Wee Heavy Scotch Ale. Be on the look out later in the season, as Power House will release two notable Belgian-style brews for fall — the Joie de Vivre Tripel and Brother Lawrence Dubbel.

BY DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES STAFF

The new academic year means new opportunities at Indiana’s state parks and reservoirs for hands-on learning in the nature’s classroom: the great outdoors. Fall is a perfect time for families and classes to visit one of Indiana’s 32 state parks and reservoirs for not only recreation, but education. Experience learning firsthand through one of the many interpretive centers, participate in a special weekend event or signup for a patch program that encourages Hoosiers to get outdoors. Grants are even available for school trips.

Most parks and reservoirs have an interpretive center — sometimes called a nature center or activity center — staffed by a full-time naturalist trained to make learning fun. These centers are like small museums, with engaging displays that explain the park’s unique features, wildlife watching areas, meeting spaces and often host live animals such as turtles and snakes. “The reason we are here is to expose people to aspects of the properties and natural and cultural world that they may not think about experiencing on their own,”

The hike started last year to help area students with leaf identification assignments, but was popular with visitors of all ages. Pioneer Day is a living history event with Rosier and other park staff dressing in period clothing, hosting pioneer games and offering tours of the historic Bronnenberg home, which belonged to a pioneer family. Kids even can dress in pioneer clothes and wash laundry with a tub and washboard. “Kids go crazy for that,” Rosier says. “You wouldn’t think so since it’s a chore. But you can’t pull them away.” Fall Fest at Mounds is a typical Halloween celebration and includes a hike that will educate visitors about why “creepy” creatures such as bats and spiders are important.

With glow-in-the-dark pumpkin painting, trick-or-treating and a costume contests, there are plenty of activities for everyone. Visitors can also learn about El Dia de Los Muertos and play a two-day-long, life-size game of Clue with an educational twist. “It’s our own variation on the typical Clue mystery,” Vance says. “We will be involving plants instead of the traditional murder suspect.” Interpretive centers, like the one at the Paynetown location, often serve as headquarters for weekend events. From re-enactments of frontier life to live raptor shows and guided hikes, events at state parks and reservoirs also help visitors better appreciate Indiana’s history and natural resources. Most events are free once the standard entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle is paid.

About 280 miles north of Lincoln State Park, Indiana Dunes State Park in Chesterton offers what is perhaps the best fall opportunity for an up-close encounter with wildlife. In its sixth consecutive year, Indiana Dunes State Park operates a saw-whet owl banding station for Project Owl-

Net. The organization aims to improve understanding of sawwhet migration and biology. Banding is done over the course of 30 nights in October and November and the public is invited to witness it. Dates and times are determined from weather forecasts. Visitors can inquire with the nature center as the banding season approaches. The park uses a special caller that plays the song of the robin-sized sawwhet, luring the birds into the park from the air and catching them in mist nets that leave the owls unhurt. Visitors often return home with photographs of a saw-whet perched on their shoulder after the bird has been banded, according to Indiana Dunes State Park naturalist Brad Bumgardner. “This is an owl that lives in the North Woods,” Bumgardner said. “It does not see a lot of man, so there is

not a lot of fear. For a few seconds they’ll sit there and then take off.” Every state park and reservoir offers a Fall Camping Weekend loaded with special events. Dates vary by property. Campsite availability and reservations can be found at camp.IN.gov.

In a League of its Own Experience small town life in this historic Indiana hamlet BY KEVIN HOWELL

H

Huntingburg, a small, Dubois

The city has had rough patches though. In 1889 a fire destroyed much of the current Fourth Street Historic District downtown. Fire-resistant brick Italianate and late Victorian buildings built from rich clay deposits nearby replaced wooden structures. Like many small towns, the downtown was fading toward the end of the 20th century, but dedicated citizens prevented its ultimate demise. “There has been a concentrated effort in the downtown by a number of individuals and organizations in the last 30 years to kind of maintain the integrity of the downtown,” Spinner explained. Antique shops helped build a niche for the downtown then, along with annual antique shows by the Chamber of Commerce. Seeing the charm and historic influence of National Register-listed Fourth Street, younger business owners have also moved downtown. Fourth Street now boasts unique businesses like Purple Plum, with original local and contemporary art; Back in

Thyme, with collectibles and antiques; Cherished Moments, with chocolate, jams and homemade bread; and flower shops, fabric shops and more. Quaint, themed eateries like Old School Café have established themselves. Old School touts its “Baseball Burger” and highlights local team jerseys and memorabilia honoring the town’s baseball culture. What really sets Huntingburg apart and gave the town a boost is a combination of baseball culture and the film industry. “A League of Their Own” began a period where Huntingburg was sought after for film production, which also included “Hard Rain” and “Soul of the Game.” It was by chance, said Spinner, that the town became a film production studio for a while. “When (director) Penny Marshall decided to make ‘A League of Their Own,’ she selected Evansville, Bosse Field, as the site,” says Spinner, who worked for the local radio station then. “They wanted to film there because the stadium was of a period they were looking for, but they were looking for a secondary location nearby.”

traveliN HOLIDAY 2014

County city in southwestern Indiana, can honestly call itself a city like no other. “There is no other Huntingburg in the United States,” says Mayor Denny Spinner. “There’s a lot of Huntingtons, but no Huntingburgs.” Match that with its history as an early hunting ground, its clay soil, historic downtown, and fame as a movie site for the 1992 film “A League of their Own.” Add the city’s state designation in August as a Stellar Community, and its motto holds true. Huntingburg was established in the 1830s when settler Jacob Geiger came to hunt bear – hence the name Huntingburg. The town grew in the mid-1800s with industries like Uhl Pottery Co., which produced the well-known Acorn Wares until the 1940s. Other industries helped the town grow. The family-owned OFS Brands, a furniture supply company, employs 1,200 people. Outlet stores, a turkey processing company and woodworking businesses add to the area’s economy.

Marshall was directed to Huntingburg and discovered League Stadium, part of the former fairgrounds, built in 1894. The production company raised the grandstands about 6 feet, reconditioned the stands and field as1940s-era appropriate, and hired hundreds of residents as extras and workers for the movie. Spinner was in the movie and made daily announcements over the radio for different groups needed on set. It brought millions in revenue to the city and gave it a major boost and popularity as a movie set.

While the movie business has dried up for now, the stadium, left as is when production ended, remains the site of summer league baseball with the Dubois County Bombers, an Ohio Valley Baseball collegiate wooden bat league. Each summer 20,000 visitors watch players in 1940s-style uniforms play ball, while young women in Rockford Peaches uniforms staff the concessions. Huntingburg also capitalizes on other highlights – the downtown district, a 188-acre city lake, a new replica railroad


station event center and its future plans. “We’re planning a trail system connecting downtown to the event center and making downtown an open community type space,” Spinner says. “There will be a new downtown park area with green space where you have a farmers market, a stage and amphitheater.” Throw in the annual art and jazz and wine festivals, September Latino Festival and other events, and Huntingburg truly is a grand travel destination.

traveliN HOLIDAY 2014

s a teenager, Greg Ehresman began working in a restaurant that went—literally—from national chain to one remaining original eatery in Lafayette. And with Greg and his wife, Carrie, running the show, Triple XXX Family Restaurant is a wellknown and much-loved staple in the community. The history goes something like this: The Triple XXX chain once consisted of hundreds of “thirst stations” throughout the United States, with their heaviest concentrations in California, Texas and the Southwest. The company had grown from the need for something else to drink when alcohol sales went away with Prohibition. Root beer had been introduced, and the stations, with only counter service, catered to weary—and thirsty—travelers who needed to make quick stops along their routes. Ehresman came to work at Triple XXX when he was 13 years old. “It was the first job I ever had,” he says. “I started doing dishes, working as a car hop; I worked in the kitchen. I was the grill man. And I used to mix the Triple XXX root beer. I would take a couple gallons of Triple XXX concentrate and pour it into a 30-gallon barrel with an 80-pound bag of pure cane sugar. I would mix that by hand until it liquefied. That was our root beer.” Eventually, Greg went on to college and moved out of state … until a chance opportunity for his parents to buy the Triple XXX brought him back to Lafayette. “Dad knew everybody who had been associated with the restaurant over the years, and they knew his passion for it,” Ehresman explains. “They called Dad and asked him if he had any interest in buying it. My parents called me to see if I had any interest in coming back and running it with my brother. I said, ‘Certainly.’” In 1999, Greg and Carrie bought the business from Greg’s parents. Eventually, they also had the opportunity to buy the original root beer company. Now the couple serves as the manufacturers and distributors of Triple XXX root beer throughout the nation, and they run the Triple XXX Family Restaurant and the Route 66 Diner, which they later opened in Lafayette in 2003. Ehresman attributes their small-town successes to his commitment to excellence in service and ingredients. “There is a resurgence of wanting to get back to where you started, to where things are comfortable,” Ehresman says. “You can walk in, see the people who run the place and you can trust that. We grew up with that. We are the real deal. We are the owners who still care.”

The Nashville House A Brown County landmark renowned for its savory home cooking, antique collectibles, fine art, and more.

A Historic Brown County landmark, The Nashville House is renowned for savory home cooking, antique collectibles and gadgets, fine art and old-fashioned hospitality. The first hostelry in Brown County, built in 1859 during the Civil War, the original Nashville House was frequented by a variety of guests and visitors—from loggers, to artists, to travelers and local residents. After fire tragically destroyed the original building in 1943, the Nashville House was lovingly rebuilt. Although the new structure

has no guest rooms, its famous food service and "Old Country Store" continue to draw scores of visitors and neighbors. An elevator also now provides ready access to the dining room.

Serving Dinner and Lunch The dinner menu of the Nashville House features a variety of delicious entrees. Country-fried hamsteak with red gravy, tangy barbecued backloin ribs, baked Hoosier ham, roast turkey, tender T-bone steak,

and the ever-popular crisp, country-fried chicken. Its famous hot fried biscuits and baked apple butter, vegetable, and coleslaw complete the meal. Sassafras tea is served either hot or cold. For lunch, The Nashville House offers smoked sausage, chopped steak, a large salad, and luncheon of the day. Sandwich plates are a special feature with Hoosier smoked ham [plain or topped with aged cheddar cheese], tender roast turkey and chopped steak. Each is served with potato chips and of course our famous homemade apple butter and fried biscuits. All sandwiches are made with oven-fresh bread, and desserts are also fresh from the bake shop ovens, with pecan pie and fresh fruit cobblers a specialty. Daily 11:30 a.m. to closing; closed Tuesdays, except in October. » for more info

There are a lot of words one could use to describe Bloomington in the fall, and one that comes to mind first is busy. There isn’t a weekend (or weekday for that matter) in the fall that isn’t jam-packed with concerts, festivals, games, receptions or other types of special events. It’s tough to keep up! But that’s not a bad thing; in fact, it’s a great thing. One of the most exciting events in October is the Hilly Hundred bicycle tour. This annual event will take place October 10-12 with a starting point in Ellettsville and a route that takes riders through the beautiful rolling hills of the region. The tour covers 50 miles on Saturday and another 50 on Sunday, so while it’s not a competitive race, it is challenging. Entertainment is provided along the route to keep riders motivated. It’s a great way

A college town teeming with fall events. to see the beautiful landscape of the area, get some exercise and have some fun. For many people, including Hoosier fans, fall means football. The IU football team has been working hard in the off-season to gear up for a winning year, and in October they’ll start their Big Ten season, with four home games over the next two months. There’s no better weekend to attend a football game in Bloomington than Homecoming, which will be October 18th this year when the Hoosiers take on Michigan State. The campus and surrounding area will be buzzing with activity, with concerts, a parade and other special events to welcome home Hoosier alumni. Hotel rooms fill up quickly, so make your plans now to cheer on the Hoosiers. Of course there’s more to Blooming-

ton than just football. This community is bursting with amazing artists and creative types. And in the fall, the theater season is in full swing. The students and faculty at IU Auditorium will be offering up several classic productions, including the popular Christmas Show “Chimes of Music”, It’s not just performance art that abounds in Bloomington: visual arts are in abundance! You can stroll through the local galleries any time of year, from the massive IU Art Museum on campus to the many galleries open downtown. And on the first Fridays of October and December, visitors can enjoy opening receptions during Gallery Walk. There’s so much to do in Bloomington this season, you can pick any date and come for a visit and have a great time!

Located in Columbus, Indiana, and one of the country’s most highly regarded examples of mid-century Modernist residences, Miller House was designed by Eero Saarinen, with interiors by Alexander Girard, and landscape design by Dan Kiley. Commissioned by industrialist and philanthropist J. Irwin Miller and his wife Xenia Simons Miller in 1952, Miller House and Garden was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2000. The house expands upon an architectural tradition developed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe—epitomizing the international Modernist aesthetic—with an open and flowing layout, flat roof and vast stone and glass walls. The rooms, configured beneath a grid pattern of skylights supported by cruciform steel columns, are filled with strong colors and playful patterns. Amid the residence’s large geometric gardens, its grandest feature is an allée of honey locust trees that runs along the west side of the house. Columbus, Indiana, is ranked sixth in the nation by the American Institute of Architects for architectural innovation and design. National Geographic Travel-
