Bewitching History Tour & Brunch
The Benton House
Sunday, October 23, 2016
Join us in a celebration of Historic Irvington’s history, both haunted and not so haunted, on a
trolley tour throughout this charming neighborhood, which is rich in architectural delights and full of character.
Steve Barnett of the Irvington Historical Society has written the narrative for the tour that will
have attendees spellbound. This Historic Irvington Halloween Festival tour has 25 sites, all narrated by B105.7 radio personalities Sean Copeland and Ann Richards.
If you choose the catered champagne brunch (from Maria Dufour, of Dufour’s restaurant fame), this bewitching event begins at 10 a.m. It includes a sit-down champagne brunch, a tour by trolley, and a one-year membership to The Benton House, a stunning landmark, in the French Second Empire style, on the east side of Indianapolis. The trolley tours on the tree-lined streets of Irvington, illuminated in autumn-like brilliance, begin at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The cost of the brunch-and- trolley-tour combination is $60. The cost of the trolley tour alone is $30.
Please visit our guests from The Benton House, the Indiana Bicentennial Commission, and the
Irvington Historical Society as the trolley tours continue throughout the day.
