The Need: The Old Pathology Building in Danger

 
In spite of previous repairs to the roof, there has been severe damage to the building from water intrusion. The electrical, HVAC, and plumbing systems are also in need of updates.  A top-to-bottom survey of the building completed by Pyramid Architecture and Engineering in January of 2015 revealed even more extensive problems than were previously known.

The cost of this urgently needed restoration and repair work is estimated to be $2,200,000.  The work will be completed in three stages.  The "gutters & up" portion was completed in 2015, and we plan to complete the rest of the exterior phase this year.

Capital Campaign News:

6/14/2016:  We're thrilled to announce that we have received a matching Historic Preservation Fund grant from the National Park Service for the second year in a row!  This $47, 400 grant will help cover the cost of the rest of the exterior masonry.  We'll begin this project in the coming months and complete it this fall.

5/12/2016: Thanks to individual donations and a grant through Indiana Landmarks from the Marion County Preservation Fund, we have now completed the masonry work on the north and east elevations of the Old Pathology Building.  We removed old mortar that was smeared on the brick faces, repointed where needed, and replaced spalled and broken bricks.

4/28/2016: Although we remain on Indiana Landmarks' watch list, we have been left off of the Indiana Landmarks' 10 Most Endangered List for 2016!  We have a long way to go, but we're very proud of our progress so far!  Thanks to all of our Capital Campaign donors who have made this possible.  And thank you for your continued support as we forge ahead.

12/31/2015: The roof replacement, chimney and gutter repairs, and masonry at the neckline of the building are complete!  This brings us much closer to being watertight.  Next up: the remainder of the exterior masonry.

11/9/2015: Work began on Phase I of repairs to the Old Pathology Building! Masonry work on the roof, such as re-pointing, replacing damaged bricks, and repairing chimneys, is the first step; Phase I work will also include replacing the shingled and membrane roofs of the building and repairing and reattaching gutters.

9/8/2015: The IMHM and its Capital Campaign are featured on the front page of the Indianapolis Star 

8/10/2015: The IMHM's Capital Campaign is the featured cover story in the new August issue of the Indianapolis Medical Society Bulletin.

6/8/2015:  The IMHM is excited to announce that it has received a $50,000 matching Historic Preservation Fund grant from the National Park Service toward replacing the roof on the Old Pathology Building and other "gutters & up" work which will begin shortly. This is the first phase of a massive repair and restoration project to stabilize and preserve the Old Pathology Building.

4/25/2015:  The Indiana Medical History Museum has been named on Indiana Landmark's 2015 Most Endangered list 

The Old Pathology Building has survived 120 years with its original furnishings and equipment intact. Help us ensure the future of this historical gem!
