Center of Indiana's Government
Visit the the fourth statehouse of Indiana. The third statehouse was condemned in 1876. The General Assembly relocated to a large office building that had been built in 1865 and was already housing the Supreme Court. The Governor and the executive staff relocated to another office building. The office building was used as the statehouse during the interim period that the new statehouse was being built. In 1887, before the new statehouse had been completed, enough of the lower floors were usable for the government to move out of the cramped office space and begin holding sessions in the new structure.

Check out an architectural salvage store. I love rummaging through these types of stores.
In Indy, Tim & Avi's (whatever happened to Billy) is the best. They are located at 2442 N Central (SW corner of E 25th St and Central Ave) in Indianapolis, IN 46202.
TROPICAL PARADISE IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER
Take a journey to a tropical waterfall complete with banana plants and palm trees. It can be the middle of winter and snow on the ground but you'll be cozy inside when you visit this conservatory. Numbers of tropical plants abound with very knowledgable staff. Occassional plant sales may result in a bargain find even midwinter. The Garfield Park Conservatory is located on Shelby St. south of downtown Indianapolis.

The canal walk is a somewhat hidden aspect of Indianapolis. Located on the west side of downtown, it winds it way from the White River northward past several landmarks. The canal walk also provides the easiest access to the USS Indianapolis memorial, thought to be the last US ship sank in World War II. The canal walk provides a nice, peaceful place to get some exercise or leisurely stroll.
