The James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home, nestled in the heart of the historic Lockerbie neighborhood, is a true preservation of the Victorian home in which the great Hoosier Poet resided for the last twenty-three years of his life. The Museum Home opened to the public in 1922, and has been offering a glimpse into the history of James Whitcomb Riley and his Victorian world for the last ninety-two years. The Home features the same furnishings and ornate d├ęcor Mr. Riley enjoyed during his lifetime. Visitors touring the Museum Home will see beautiful ceilings painted by Italian artisans, the desk where Mr. Riley penned some of his most well known poems such as "Little Orphant Annie" and "The Raggedy Man," and a myriad of other treasures.
