James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home

As the nation's only late-Victorian preservation open to the public, the James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home in downtown Indianapolis is a window not only into another era, but also into the personal life of the famed "Hoosier Poet," James Whitcomb Riley. The home showcases many of Riley's personal belongings, including his top hat and cane, a portrait of his beloved dog, Lockerbie, and the desk where he wrote Little Orphant Annie and some of his most famous poems.The Riley Museum Home is owned and operated by the Riley Children’s Foundation.
