Show House on Meridian Street Again

The 52nd annual St. Margaret's Guild Decorators' Show House and Gardens takes place 27 April through 12 May.

This year's house is the Schnull-Rauch House, 3050 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis. The Romanesque Revival structure listed on the National Register of Historic Places was build in 1902.

Home to the Junior League of Indianapolis from 1979 to 2009, it was sold to the neighboring Children's Museum of Indianapolis in 2009.

Tickets are $20 at the door. for tours from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (except Mondays). There are a series of special events planned, including a "Tablescape Breakfast", historic trolley tours and a fashion show.

St. Margaret's Hospital Guild is a volunteer group of about 70 women that has supported Wishard Hospital (soon to be renamed Eskenazi Health) since 1907. Each year the Guild organizes the refurbishment of a classic home, opens the home for a two-week public tour, and donates the tour proceeds to Wishard Health Services.
