The house, grounds and gardens are lovely. They are still working on the house, but what they have accomplished so far is worth seeing.

Toured Oldfields a few days ago. The house is very interesting and located on the grounds of the Indianapolis Museum of Art. The house makes you feel like you have traveled in time to the flapper era. I would like to see the bedrooms furnished....More

The gardens surrounding this lovely old house will delight at any season. Christmas is especially special, but watch those lines. Take the time to explore front and back. Amazing art, architecture, and history await you and/or your family.

A must visit for Indianapolis. A great period example. So many things to see, you can go again and again. The grounds are spectacular, don't miss the whispering bench.
