One of the best parts of my job at the statehouse is seeing all the visitors absolutely awestruck by the majesty of our buildings. They marvel at the history behind every limestone column, the stained glass dome and the marble floors. And then, they learn about all of the other architectural marvels across Indiana from our memorials to our universities.

Down in French Lick, the West Baden Resort was once called the Eighth Wonder of the World and remains one of Indiana’s most dazzling hidden gems today. Meanwhile, Columbus, Indiana, is known as the Athens of the West with seven national historic landmarks and over 90 structures from international architects and artists.

We have historic presidential homes, towering lighthouses on the shore, and over 100 covered bridges that date back to the 1800s. There’s even a classic labyrinth down in New Harmony, Indiana—a place for quiet contemplation and reflection within the garden.

With such a variety of incredible architecture, it’s no wonder that people are drawn to these places that bring beauty to our everyday lives.
