Vincennes, C’est si bon!

From the early saves of French architecture and territorial landmarks to a recent adaptation of a school into a residence, Vincennes offers a timeline of Indiana architecture and displays the evolution of preservation from the 1940s to today. Indiana’s oldest city struck us as the perfect place for the Preserving Historic Places Conference in 2016, the year of Indiana’s bicentennial and the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation.
