Photo: Stained glass of the Indiana Landmarks Center

A few varieties of the many stained glass patterns in the Indiana Landmarks Center at Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Indiana Landmarks Center is located in a former Methodist church on Central Avenue. This utterly beautiful 1891 Romanesque Revival structure was lovingly renovated with help from the Cook family (Cook Group Inc. headquartered in Bloomington, Indiana). The Indiana Landmarks Center moved into the renovated space in 2012, which is host various events and tours.

I enthusiastically recommend the Indiana Landmarks Center tour, which takes you through different rooms and walks you through the history of Indianapolis and building.

It was during one of these free tours (which by happenstance was a private tour—no one else showed up) that I shot these photos of the stained glass.

The windows had been re-leaded and in some places missing or broken pieces replaced by the same Kokomo-based company that had originally (!) created the windows. (How’s that for a company that has withstood economic vicissitudes!)
