If These Walls Could Tell: Shrewsbury-Windle House in Madison, IndianaWinner of the Indiana Landmarks’ 2019 Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration told by Lou Ann Homa

February 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$15 – $20

Upon its completion in 1849, Charles Shrewsbury’s Greek Revival-style home in Madison defined antebellum elegance, with high-ceilinged rooms, decorative columns, and floor-to-ceiling windows framing views of the Ohio River. Architect Francis Costigan displayed his genius in the Shrewsbury home’s crowning feature: a freestanding spiral staircase ascending from the front foyer up through the entire height of the house. It was a showplace built for entertaining.
In envisioning a new future for the Shrewsbury-Windle Home more than 150 years later, Historic Madison, Inc. is returning the home to its gathering-place roots by turning it into an events venue. The group’s four-year transformation of the National Historic Landmark earned Indiana Landmarks’ 2019 Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration in April 2019
