James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home
What was once the home of Hoosier Poet James Whitcomb Riley, this Victorian home, filled with period furnishings, has become a chance to look at what it was to live during a simpler time. Some of his personal belongings remaining are his writing desk, top hat and cane, and a portrait of his dog.
The Lockerbie neighborhood is one of the most quaint and brilliantly preserved and restored in Indianapolis. The Riley home is on a gorgeous brick street, tree-lined and surrounded by homes that have been well cared for. The tour is highly interesting and informative and provides information about Riley's personal life as well as his work as a writer and poet. A highlight of my visit was learning about the lovely late-Victorian architecture and decor of the home as well as the many original items within the home that have been preserved. The docents are quite knowledgable and very friendly.
