Event description

Description

In the early 1800s, whiskey distilleries put southeast Indiana on the map, earning Lawrenceburg the nickname “Whiskey City.” In the adjacent town of Greendale, distilling moguls built stately homes reflecting their prosperity along Ridge Avenue. Today, the architect-designed homes in Italianate, Second Empire, and other historic styles offer a visual feast. On the Ridge Avenue Ramble, you’ll tour four private homes—two undergoing renovation and two restored.

The homes on tour include restorations in progress by Jim and Sam Fulton at 337 Ridge Avenue, built c.1860, and by Bill and Nancy Smith at their 1883 home, 139 Ridge Avenue. The tour also features Bill and Pat Krider’s 1929 Mediterranean Revival home at 548 Ridge Avenue and Jason and Melissa Watkins’ c.1868 Italianate house at 509 Ridge Avenue. Docents will talk about the distilling industry that helped create the Ridge Avenue mansions, and you’ll hear behind-the-scenes stories of the houses and the restorations.

Ridge Avenue Ramble is presented by Indiana Landmarks in partnership with Dearborn County Historical Society and Greendale Redevelopment Commission.

Since this tour is SOLD OUT, we will NOT sell tickets the day of the tour.
