Learn about gone but not forgotten Indianapolis intersections and share your memories of lost places and spaces.  

Using multiple archival sources, guests are invited to investigate lost, demolished, and re-developed Indianapolis intersections. From the relocation of Greenlawn, the city’s first cemetery, to reconstruction of White River State Park, and finally stumbling upon an early 20th century red light district, local library experts will showcase how the Indianapolis built environment has changed over time and consider what this change meant for people then and now. Participants will be guided on how to use digital collections, formulate research strategies when doing local history, and will be invited to share memories of lost spaces and places in their communities. 

Free parking available in the History Center lot at New York and West Streets. (Accessible off New York.)
