In 1986, Indiana Humanities had the opportunity to purchase the historic, early 1900s Meredith Nicholson House. Appropriate, as Meredith Nicholson was a Hoosier author whose most notable novel, The House of a Thousand Candles, was written while he was a resident of this historic home. As with all historic properties, constant upkeep is essential to its longevity.
Schmidt Associates updated the exterior of the home, including tuckpointing the masonry, restoring the windows, and removing an addition to bring back the historic side porch. Internally, the first floor was updated to allow for a greater functionality and the creation of a humanities hub. The office space on the second floor now provides for a more open, inviting office environment.
