Explore Hoosier history next month with a guided tour of the Allen County Courthouse in Fort Wayne.

The more than 120-year-old building is a registered National Historic Landmark. It’s constructed of Bedford, Indiana, limestone, with granite columns and white Carrara marble staircases, balustrades and walls.

Guests will learn about the building’s history and the community leaders behind preservation efforts, which took eight years and nearly $9 million. The guide will discuss the techniques and processes used in restoration, as well as the artwork throughout the building.

The tour will include information about livable communities, walkability and AARP Indiana’s efforts to improve the quality of life for Fort Wayne residents. Go to and click on Events for details.
