The National Trust's annual National Preservation Conference, to be held in Indianapolis Oct. 30-Nov.2, will feature more than 35 half-day and full-day tours at landmarks throughout the community - plus a slate of soirees.
Indiana Landmarks plans to "roll out the red carpet" for attendees. Highlights include the launch of an LGBT preservation heritage project with a fundraising dance party at Talbott Street
on Oct. 30.
Non-registrants also have a chance to scoop up a few of the limited tickets available for the Halloween Candlelight Tour of the Old Northside on Oct. 31. The final gala, which will have a prohibition-era theme with music by cabaret vocalist Cynthia Layne, is set for Nov. 1 at the Columbia Club.
Check out the Landmarks Emporium pop-up bookstore at Union Station throughout the conference for literature and vintage goods (to prepare the'20s-themed party, for example).
During the conference, an invitation-only real estate charette featuring experts capable of assessing Downtown's Old City Hall at 202 N. Alabama St. will gather to ponder revitalization for the storied structure that, apart from extraordinary events such as Turf Art Pavilion
staged in conjunction with Super Bowl festivities, has sat vacant since 2008.
