Meet downtown Indy’s charmingly historic venue: 1899

June 10, 2021Lauren Windle

A very simple name pairs with this completely renovated historic building located at 164 Steeples Boulevard on Indianapolis’ near west side.

1899 ( is a picturesque event space located in historic Central State Village. The antique brick building has been a part of the landscape in Indianapolis for more than a century, as the name implies.

Lovingly updated and refurbished -- right down to the original restored tile floors and pressed tin ceilings -- ‘The1899’ is a timeless setting for today’s weddings, receptions, conferences, and private events for up to 500 guests.

The 1899 features:

  • Grand ballroom with crystal chandeliers and elegant tile floors
  • Intimate bridal dressing rooms
  • Ample private estate grounds with large trees
  • Fully landscaped gardens and fountain
  • Plenty of available parking
  • Handicap accessibility

Recently endorsed by The Knot, The 1899 is an especially appropriate setting for wedding receptions because of its huge ballroom with expansive windows, and its gorgeous views outside and in – making for perfect backdrops for memorable photographs.

And of course, since Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering is one of a select group of Indy caterers invited to prepare and serve at 1899, you know the food is going to be as easy on the eyes as it is fabulous (and fresh and healthy) on the palate!
