In 1960, Mark and Eugenia Honeywell purchased a home at 720 N. Wabash St. in Wabash. The residence underwent a substantial renovation, during which Mr. Honeywell sadly passed away. Mrs. Honeywell completed the renovation and was moved in by 1964. In addition to being her personal home, the House was used for frequent social gatherings until Mrs. Honeywell’s death in 1974 during a tragic house fire.

Mrs. Honeywell had made arrangements for the Indiana University Foundation to oversee the property and transform it into a center for cultural enrichment. The I.U. Foundation recognized the unique relationship the House had with the Honeywell Center, and the Honeywell Foundation took ownership of the property in 2011.

Mrs. Honeywell’s passion for arts and culture continues to be reflected in the elegant stylings of the house, now operating as a cultural house museum. Tours, social gatherings, weddings, meetings, musical performances, and other special events take place regularly at the property.
