From 1853 to 1968, four generations of the Bohlen family of Indianapolis designed exceptional buildings across Indiana. On October 3, architectural historian Dr. James Glass will present insights into examples of Bohlen architecture that include the French Lick Springs Hotel, the Shelby County Courthouse and the Murat Temple in Indianapolis. D.A. Bohlen and Son also designed Indiana Landmarks’ Morris-Butler House, Crown Hill’s Gothic Chapel and most of the buildings for the Sisters of Providence and Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College near Terre Haute. Glass’s presentation will feature historic illustrations and photos of landmarks still in use and others lost, including the English Opera House and Hotel on Monument Circle. A cash bar will be available from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m.
