Venue Description

Adjacent to Indiana Landmarks Center, the Victorian-era Morris-Butler House offers a rich, historic ambiance for small gatherings.

Built in 1865 in the Second Empire style, Morris-Butler House is an ideal rental venue for smaller weddings, receptions, dinners, and other special events, educational programs, and small meetings. Rental spaces on the first floor—all furnished with antiques—include the formal parlor, dining room, and library. The rooms have rich color schemes, decorative painting, and the high ceilings and nearly floor-to-ceiling windows typical of high Victorian interiors. These areas are handicapped accessible through the use of an elevette from a private parking court. The house has a lower-level catering kitchen and on-site parking.
Ideal for wedding ceremonies, luncheons, teas, dinners, lectures, meetings, seminars
Capacity: 40 seated ceremony, 32 seated dinner, 40 standing reception
The Victorian parlor features high ceilings, plaster moldings, a crystal chandelier, and a fireplace mantle topped by an immense gilt-framed mirror. For small weddings, the room’s bay window provides a lovely niche for minister and couple. The entry hall, furnished with Victorian antiques, can function as a check-in/welcome area.
