A little bit of history.

The building was built originally in 1899 by Central State Hospital and was used for quite some time as a recreational and gathering area for the patients of the hospital, it then was used as a dinning area up until the hospital closed two decades ago. The owners have carefully preserved the building from unique floor tiles, wood work, and the ceilings with the sky lights. It is rather cool and unique venue that you won't find anything quite like it in the Indianapolis area.
