Wylie House

Built in 1835, Wylie House was the home of Indiana University's first president, Andrew Wylie, and his family. Today Wylie House is owned and operated by Indiana University as an historic house museum recreating the Wylie home prior to 1860.

Wylie House contains an outstanding collection of early-to mid-19th century American furnishings, including many Wylie family artifacts. A large collection of Wylie family letters and personal papers are housed in University Archives.

A special quilt exhibit by the Wylie House Quilters is on display until the end of March. Accompanying labels explain the history and patterns of each piece. The exhibit may be viewed during March tours of Wylie House.

Wylie House is the home of former Indiana University President Adrew Wylie.
