[DNR] Historic Bronnenberg Home at Mounds SP opens May 4
Start Date: 5/4/2014Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 5/4/2014End Time: 4:00 PM
Entry Description
The historic Bronnenberg Home at Mounds State Park will open for the season on Sunday, May 4.

The home will remain open on Saturdays and Sundays through early fall from 1 to 4 p.m. and be hosted by the Friends of Mounds State Park group.

The home dates to the 1840s and is named after one of the area’s first pioneer families. The Bronnenbergs, who were German immigrants, settled in Madison County and became the first stewards and protectors of the mounds, which were built by a prehistoric indigenous culture known as the Adena-Hopewell. The Bronnebergs farmed the adjacent land and raised a family in the brick home.

The Friends of Mounds State Park group has been instrumental in restoring the home. Years of painting, plastering, refinishing and acquiring period-appropriate furnishings have made the home one of the park’s showpieces. Groups interested in touring the home outside of the scheduled Saturday and Sunday times may call the naturalist at (765) 649-8128 to arrange alternate times.

Entrance to the Bronnenberg Home is free after paying the standard park entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle.

Mounds State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2977.htm) is at 4306 Mounds Road, Anderson, 46017.
