Daily tickets are $30 each. Video tour experiences at $15 also are available. As always, it’s sponsored by the St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild and benefits Eskenazi Health. The show house is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays, with extended hours from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursdays. The link to a live tour will be distributed to purchasers beginning April 24, 2021.

Twenty-two interior designers and three landscape architects have transformed this elegant residence on Indianapolis’ main north and south thoroughfare. “The Columns on Meridian” was constructed in 1929 and 1930 by The Shoen-Morgan Company. The property includes a house built in the Colonial Revival architectural style, a detached garage, gardens, and an outdoor swimming pool.

A history of “the Columns on Meridian” is available online. Previous owners have included author Meredith Nicholson and Warren Charles Fairbanks, owner of the Indianapolis News.
