Event description

Description

Do you favor rustic landmarks, like early log structures? Or are you a fan of Mid-Century Modern-style houses? Either way, we’ve got you covered on our May 4 Logs to Lustrons tour. Indiana Landmarks, in partnership with the Indiana Dunes National Park (IDNP), team up to present 13 sites spanning a century of architecture, including restored residences not normally open to the public and vacant landmarks in need of a new use. Eight interiors will be open for touring.

For the tour, you’ll ride a shuttle that departs from the Dorothy Buell Memorial Indiana Dunes National Park Visitor Center at your ticket time. Shuttles will circulate throughout the tour, so you can spend more time at sites that interest you, from log structures of early settlement days, to frame homes from the Victorian period, and mid-century homes of glass, stucco, and metal.

Children who join the tour (with parent or guardian) can earn a Junior Ranger badge by picking up a workbook, program, and a bag with sketchbook and pencil when they check-in at the Visitor Center. At the end of the tour, they show the completed workbook to a Park Ranger on the bus or visitor center to earn a badge. Children under 16 are welcome to attend the tour for free, but will still need to reserve a ticket.

Choose your timed entry ticket and departure time: slots available every 15 minutes beginning at 8:30 a.m. with the last tour departing at 2 p.m., Central Time. The tour lasts approximately three hours, depending upon how much time you choose to spend at each site. The tour sites will close at 4 p.m., Central Time.

Box lunches are also available for an additional $11 made by Third Coast Spice Cafe. You have a choice between a vegetarian option or one of three meat choices and can be purchased on the ticket page. If you chose to purchase a box lunch, you will be able to pick them up between 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at the Beverly Shores Museum, a shuttle-stop about halfway through the tour. Picnic tables are available at the site.
