DescriptionThis National Historic Landmark was designed and built by General Lew Wallace as a personal study. Best known as the author of Ben-Hur, Lew Wallace (1827-1905) was a Renaissance Man and notable Hoosier. Historians, tourists, schoolchildren, and families have explored the Study for 100 years, learning about Wallace’s life as a soldier, author, diplomat, inventor, artist, and architect. The Museum houses personal mementos from his service as the Minister to Turkey (1881-1885), Governor of New Mexico Territory (1878-1881), Civil War Major General, and Vice-President of the trial of those who conspired to assassinate President Lincoln. His artwork, violins, inventions, and library are on display, along with memorabilia from various adaptations of Ben-Hur, including the 1959 Oscar-winning version starring Charlton Heston. The Museum is located on 3.5-acres of wooded grounds and is equipped with picnic tables and handicapped-accessible restrooms.
