5417 North Meridian Street April 24 – May 9, 2021
The “Columns on Meridian” is a beautiful Colonial home, featuring eight massive Corinthian columns on its open front porch. The residence was completed in 1930 by the Schoen-Morgan Real Estate Company. The home's first owners were author, poet, and statesman, Meredith Nicholson, and his wife, Eugenie. Born in Crawfordsville, Indiana, Nicholson was a self-taught writer who worked for the Indianapolis Sentinal and the Indianapolis News. He wrote extensively and helped to create the Golden Age of literature in Indiana. He also served as U.S. Minister to Paraguay, Venezuela, and Nicaragua under Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman.
