Saving Places tells the stories of individuals who are engaged in revitalizing, protecting, and preserving our historic places in Indiana. This video documentary tells the stories of four sites from across Indiana: Wilson Bridge near Delphi; The John Jay Center for Learning in Portland; Lyles Station School near Princeton; and the Maple Grove Road Historic District near Bloomington.

There are dozens of important historic places in Indiana that are constantly threatened by sprawl, obsolescence, and lack of official protection. Others are disappearing before our eyes by abandonment, neglect, and deterioration. But we can be encouraged because there are many places in our state where people decided to work together to preserve unique historic sites.

Produced by WTIU in cooperation with Indiana Landmarks, Saving Places tells the stories of individuals who are engaged in revitalizing, protecting, and preserving our historic places in Indiana. This video documentary tells the stories of four sites from across Indiana: Wilson Bridge near Delphi; The John Jay Center for Learning in Portland; Lyles Station School near Princeton; and the Maple Grove Road Historic District near Bloomington.

Today, historic preservation is much more about the future than about the past. Saving our historic landmarks helps us build meaningful communities for the future. It also helps us provide a place for those who come after us in which they will understand and appreciate the special culture of Indiana.

Saving Places focuses on the positives of “community-building” and economic growth that successful preservation can engender. Viewers will see the astounding transformations and find out what inspires people to get involved. What actions were taken? What obstacles were faced or are still being faced? All of the projects required organization, commitment, passion, and energy. While there are similarities—each story is different.
