Travel Tips for Richmond

Renovation of Levi Coffin Site

by deecat

We were very fortunate to be able to see the Levi Coffin historic site on our visit to Indiana because it was closed. However, by chance, in a restaurant in Centerville, we met some people who knew volunteers who worked at this site. They called these volunteers, asking if they would open the house for a private tour for us. In shock, we discovered the volunteers agreed to drive to Fountain City, open up the house, & give us the tour!

(From Jill Martin)

In 1967, the state of Indiana purchased The Coffin house from the estate of Nola Rupe Brittain. The Wayne County Historical Society undertook the restoration of the house and open it to the public in 1969.

Volunteers conduct tours, showing the home to thousands of school children, and opening it to the public during the summer.

The next project of the Levi Coffin House Association is a Visitors Center.

The tour guides were excellent explaining everything in detail.
