From the early saves of French architecture and territorial landmarks to a recent adaptation of a school into a residence, Vincennes offers a timeline of Indiana architecture and displays the evolution of preservation from the 1940s to today. Indiana’s oldest city is the location of the 2016 Preserving Historic Places Conference, the year of Indiana’s bicentennial and the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation.
