Notes
Survey number HABS IN-65
Building/structure dates: 1888 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1914 subsequent work
Significance: The station is an excellent example of the American Romanesque Revival style of architecture strongly influenced by the work of H.H. Richardson. The exterior is unusual in the skillful combining of brick and granite. The building is an important landmark in Indianapolis, and its barrel-vaulted main waiting room is one of the finest large-scale public spaces in the city.
