The July 2023 edition of Urban Times featured the first of a two-part series celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis Propylaeum being housed in the stately home on N. Delaware Street in The Old Northside. The women’s organization was founded in 1888, with its first home being on East Vermont Street on land now occupied by the Indiana War Memorial.
As the Indianapolis Propylaeum continues to celebrate its centennial on Delaware Street, several events dot the August calendar. They include:
- On Aug. 29, Pages at the Prop will host author Trish Whitcomb for a discussion of her book, Road Trip: Our Two Wild and World-Changing Weeks Behind the Iron Curtain.
- On Aug. 9, The Anonymous Series will focus on the Women of the Labor movement. The series started by Ali Brown celebrates our Hoosier heroines, sharing the stories of lesser-known amazing women in our community’s history.
- On Aug. 11, John Alvarado will perform on Aug. 11 to wrap up this summer’s Porch Concert Series.
Part two of the series, which will focus on the Propylaeum’s membership and educational programming, is scheduled to appear in the September edition of Urban Times.
