Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site
Benjamin Harrison was destined for great public service. After all:

  • Father - Two term congressman from Ohio
  • Grandfather - William H. Harrison was the ninth President of the United States
  • Great-Grandfather - Governor of Virginia and a signer of the Declaration of Independence
The 1874-75 sixteen room Italianate Victorian home was the scene of 80 "front porch" campaign speeches in 1888 before over 300,000 citizens. The site has his well stocked library on display. The home is exquisitely restored with an exceptional collection of more than 10,000 artifacts. Reservations are required – bus service will be provided from the meet site.

Ray Skillman Classic Car Showroom

Ray Skillman Classic Car Showroom
Ray has agreed to open his classic car business showroom for our club !! There are around 100 vehicles and an eclectic collection of automobile memorabilia. Ray owns a number of new and used automobile dealerships in the area. His passion is for anything automotive and has recently started increasing the number of Indy 500 cars to his collection. In addition, there is a 1928 carousel there. There is no fee, just show up at the Greenwood dealership on the designated afternoon that has been set aside for us!!

Indiana War Memorial Tour
This tour is especially appealing to our veterans. Indianapolis is second only to Washington DC in the number of war memorials in the city. Many of them are concentrated around our tour route. We will depart the meet grounds for a bus tour including Monument Circle, and then proceed up Meridian Street to the five blocks of memorials – both state and national American Legion buildings, cenotaph of the first soldier killed in WW I, War Memorial Building who’s cornerstone was laid by General John “Black Jack” Pershing in 1927, semi-circular memorials to the Hoosiers killed in WW II, Korean and Vietnam Wars. You will see scores of buildings where the world famous Indiana Limestone was used during construction. Cost is for the bus transportation only.
