Supporting Eskenazi Health since 1907

St. Margaret's Hospital Guild is pleased to present its 57th Annual Decorators' Show House and Gardens. Located in the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood at 4140 North Illinois Street, this unique 92-year-old residence provides many opportunities for highlighting periods in Indianapolis history, for showcasing the talents of local designers and landscapers, and for supporting the innovative programs of Eskenazi Health. 

Founded in 1907, St. Margaret’s Hospital Guild is a volunteer organization committed to raising funds for Eskenazi Health Services, whose mission is to advocate, care, teach, and serve, with special emphasis on the underserved and vulnerable populations of Indianapolis.

Each year Guild members -- in cooperation with designers, landscape architects, financial sponsors, and donors of in-kind services -- volunteer their time, talents, goods, and monies to raise funds to help others. Typically, the homeowners move into temporary housing while their home is being redecorated. Rent, as well as moving and storage expenses, are assumed by the Guild. Early in February, the designers begin their work inside the house. The landscapers start their outdoor work a bit later. By late April, the Show House is ready for visitors.    

Over the years, the proceeds from the Decorators' Show House and Gardens have funded countless programs and projects for Eskenazi Health. We thank you for visiting our website, and we hope you will tour the Show House and attend the related Show House events, all of which make our contributions to Eskenazi Health possible.
