About

Located in Indianapolis, Indiana, Indiana Landmarks Center is a historic wedding venue that was originally built in 1891. Featuring glamorous embellishments and accent pieces, this stunning destination is a testament to preservation. Having gone through trials of long-term neglect and dilapidation, this venue has been lovingly restored and refurbished. Nowadays, it welcomes many different types of events to come in and experience the elegant surroundings, complete with rich details.

Facilities and Capacity

Indiana Landmarks Center lived a former life as the Central Avenue United Methodist Church. Following 2011, it began a new life as Indiana Landmarks Center. Original elements, such as ornate ceilings, gold filigree, and elegant wood, were preserved in the restoration process of this venue. Through this consideration, hallmarks of the Grand Hall and Cook Theater were saved and are beautifully showcased in this newest iteration of the building. Outside, there is the Place de Basile courtyard, manicured and cared for by expert gardeners. For smaller occasions, couples may find the Morris-Butler House attractive. There, they can accommodate cozier gatherings amongst Victorian antiques. Depending on the place of hosting, between 30 and 550 guests can attend an event held on this historic campus.

Services Offered

Indiana Landmarks Center is pleased to provide clients with a preferred caterer list. While at the venue, meals can be prepared on-site by utilizing the full-service kitchen or the two serving kitchens. With flexible options available, couples can choose the vendor that suits their needs and budget. Decorations are welcome, though they are subject to approval by Indiana Landmarks Center. Couples will also have the opportunity to supply their own flowers, band, DJ, and wedding cake. Depending on party sizes and venue spaces used, there may be an area suited for a cocktail reception prior to any seated dinners. For those getting ready on-site, there are rooms available to change and prepare in at the campus. Wedding planners are not provided, however, Indiana Landmarks Center's team will coordinate and work with hired vendors to assist with day-of execution.

    We love this venue

    We had our wedding last month at the landmarks center and I am so happy we did. Tara and Maureen were so nice to work with. We got so many compliments about how amazing the venue is and how nice the staff was. I would recommend working with Tara and Maureen at the landmarks center to friends and family 100%. Thank you both for helping me have the best day.

    Beautiful Historic Venue in Downtown Indianapolis

    I worked with Tara at Indiana Landmarks Center for my October 2020 wedding. We chose ILC for our ceremony and reception due to the fact that there are two separate main event spaces, The Grand Hall and Cook Theater, that we could use to our needs. ILC also had their own parking lot and an elevator to get to the second floor mezzanine which are both hard to come by in a downtown historic venue. When we had to postpone our original May wedding due to Covid, Tara was a pleasure to work with when searching for a new date. She was easily accessible by phone and email and was so flexible with us when our guest count was continuously changing with the government restrictions. Tara, Maureen and Alan were all present on our wedding day and we can’t thank them enough for their hard work in making a beautiful wedding happen during a pandemic! I would highly recommend ILC for events as the team is great to work with, and the space is just beautiful with so many options for fitting small to large groups of people safely.

    Elegance at it's Finest!

    We are so thankful that we found Indiana Landmarks! This is the most beautiful and affordable venue I've seen. Our ceremony was located in Grand Hall which looks like a beautiful theater and a church combined! The stained glass and custom lighting is stunning during any time of the day. Our favorite part of Grand Hall is the newly restored Pipe Organ! The pipes make a timeless, stunning backdrop. We didn't have to decorate the stage at all! They have a small table that we borrowed for our unity set and any other small details, they were happy to assist with. They have a room in which the bridal party can wait in. It's smaller so I wouldn't suggest getting ready here, but it was perfect to wait in while our guests were arriving. Our reception was held in the adjoining room, Cook Theater. You have to see it to appreciate how amazing it is! 2 stories, your guests can look over the balcony and watch people dancing below. The mezzanine upstairs was perfect for our photobooth, cocktail hour and just a nice quieter space for guests who needed to take a break. Downstairs, they have their own kitchen on site which was valuable to our caterer. They have a small room off to the side which hosted the bar and buffet line. We had our head table on the stage which was so much fun! We could look out and see all of our guests.
    Our venue site coordinator was always prompt in returning my emails and was VERY sweet and accommodating! Any time we had a meeting, she was always right there by the entry door waiting for our arrival. I could go on and on but the point is, I've coordinated many weddings in the past and I was so blessed to have come across this amazing venue for my own special day. Thanks to Sari, Alyssa and Alan for our perfect day!!!
