FUN FRIDAYS: Field Trip Information
Indiana’s Historic Federal Building
Friday, February 10, 2017
Join us at the Birch Bayh Federal Building and U.S. Court House, located at the corner of Pennsylvania and Ohio, on February 10 as we tour this historic structure, truly a work of art!
DID YOU KNOW that this building has been home to our federal court for over one hundred years? Adorned with marble and mosaics, statues and friezes, and exquisitely detailed paintings, this imposing structure has provided a fitting background for the many important legal decisions handed down by the judges and juries in the district.
Judge Sarah Evans Barker, the first female judge to sit on our state’s federal bench, and our Women’s Enrichment Series guest speaker in April, has a courtroom here named in her honor. (You’ll want to order your ticket for her lecture, scheduled April 20, 2017, to hear about her experiences on the bench!)
We will meet at the Propylaeum at 9:30 am on February 10 and travel together to the Federal Building where we’ll join our tour guide, Doria Lynch, on the first floor .
The first floor can be accessed via the main entrance by taking the steps or you can take the ramp on the west side of the building. Elevators are available to move between floors.
You MUST HAVE a photo ID to enter the building. NO liquids, photography, weapons, or pepper spray are allowed.
Contact the Propylaeum Main Office at 317.638.7881, option #5 to register to attend!
