Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Amber Alert
Amber Alert - TEST

Legacy Projects > Hazelden – Home of George Ade Hazelden – Home of George Ade

We plan to celebrate Indiana’s 200th birthday by hosting a public celebration at the 1900’s Elizabethan home of George Ade, one of Indian’s most famous sons. Mr. Ade was a newspaper columnist, humorist and a most prolific playwright, having had three plays/musicals on Broadway at the same time. George is also the “Ade” on Purdue’s Ross-Ade football stadium. Our event will feature our own George Age impersonator telling of Ade’s life stories and experiences in conjunction with free tours of Hazeldon. Visitors are welcome to take part in the annual Brook Fish Fry that begins at 5:00p.m. on the same day in downtown Brook.
