Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana the Indiana Preservationist 3402 Boulevard Place, Indianapolis, IN 46208 No. 1, 1981 Special to CITY HOUSE by Tina Connor CITY HOUSE alone is a good enough excuse for a trip to Chicago, but HLFI has decided to go all out and make a weekend of it. All old-house lovers are enthusiastically invited to reserve a seat on HLFI's Special to CITY HOUSE. The chartered Amtrack car will leave Indianapolis' Union Station at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 28, and will return at 9:25 p.m. on Sunday, As we reported in the last issue of the Indiana Preservationist, CITY HOUSE is a unique home improvement fair for people who are renovating or restoring old houses. Over 300 exhibitors will display and demonstrate quality products and services at Donnelly Hall (McCormick Place West). When it rolls into the station, Special to CITY HOUSE will be met by buses which will take us to our reserved accommodations at the Blackstone Hotel at Michigan Avenue and East Balbo. The Blackstone won a gold medal for design when it was erected in 1910, and the building's public spaces have recently been restored. * Special to CITY HOUSE will spend the day on Saturday—from 12:30 to 6:00—at CITY HOUSE. Buses will return the group to the Blackstone, where HLFI will hold a cash bar reception for the group and special guests in the restored Crystal Ballroom from 7:00 to 9:00. You'll be on you own Saturday night, but on Sunday HLFI has arranged a Special to CITY HOUSE bus tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie School of Architecture Historic District in Oak Park. The di"strict,contains twenty-five structures by Wright, the largest collection of his designs in the world. Following the bus tour, we'll be taken on a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio which the architect designed and built between 1889 and 1898. The cost of Special to CITY HOUSE is $85 per person for members of HLFI0 The non-member fee of $105 includes a one-year membership in HLFI. For those who prefer a single room at the hotel, the member cost is $96; hon^members, $116. The fee for the trip includes group rate train travel (with a continental breakfast on the way up and a box lunch on the return trip) and hotel room; CITY HOUSE admission; transportation to and from the train station and CITY HOUSE; and the tour on Sunday. An individual traveling to CITY HOUSE on his or her own—without the benefit of group rates—would pay 30% more fox the same trip. Members will soon be receiving brochures wi:th more detailed information and detachable reservation forms. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the trip or CITY HOUSE, please feel free to call (317-926-2301). Indiana ranks 44th in federal funds for preservation DURING the recent lame duck session, Congress appropriated $32.5 million for the federal historic preservation program. The award includes $25.3 million for the states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories, and $4.7 million for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Congress also set aside $1.0 million for the Secretary of the Interior's discretionary reserve, and $1.5 million, for program administration within the Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service. The 1981 federal appropriation is significantly less than the amount awarded in 1980, but preservation lobbyists consider it a victory because it is $7.5 million more than the $25 million recommended by the Carter Administration. The 1980 appropriation of $55 million included a $5.2 million for the National Trust. Last year, when the 1980 appropriation was announced, HLFI voiced concern in the Indiana Preservationist over Indiana's low allocation of $569,225. That placed us 43rd out of the 50 states: California received the most (over $1.7 million) and Wyoming the least (under $240,000). The current report is even more disheartening. Indiana has been awarded only $332,609 for fiscal year 1981, down $236,616 from last year. And in the dollar rankings Indiana has dropped to 44th out of 50. California is still on top with $787,832, and Wyoming is still in the basement with $206,551. THE money Indiana receives from the federal government is awarded in the form of grants-in-aid to local preservation projects throughout the state. Grants are available for acquisition and development projects as well as survey and planning programs. It is expected that James Ridenour, newly appointed state historic preservation officer and director of the Department of Natural Resources, will announce the 1981 grant recipients sometime within the next two months.
