Hostess House

The Hostess House is a historically significant structure, not only to to the people of Grant County, but to the state of Indiana. It captures the beauty and elegance of the early 1900s and remains one of Grant County's treasures. This gracious house was built during the early part of the 20th century and was the site of many cocktail parties, dinners and afternoon teas for invited guests. After being abandoned and vandalized in the 1940s, a group of Marion women started a community-wide effort to revitalize the structure. They named it the Hostess House - a place they could use to entertain outside their homes. The Wilson-Vaughan Hostess House is a place for people to enjoy lunch, attend weddings, cultural events and other social gatherings. But more important it is a vital part of Grant County's history.
