Indiana Veterans Home 
The Indiana Veterans’ Home (State Soldiers’ Home) opened in 1896 to veterans and their spouses. The veteran did not have to serve in an Indiana regiment to be admitted to the home. The Archives maintains more than 10,000 files for individuals in the home between 1896-1964. These packets frequently contain applications, family information, and burial and death notices. Patrons should contact the Archives at arc@icpr.in.gov to inquire about fees for copies of resident packets.
