In 1960, alarmed by the loss of defining historic buildings in the capital city, a group of Indianapolis civic leaders created Indiana Landmarks. The organization established by those volunteers now ranks as the largest private statewide preservation group in the United States, with an Indianapolis headquarters and nine regional offices staffed by professionals who help Hoosiers save and restore old buildings.
