Indiana Landmarks

The Indiana Landmarks Historical Society played a monumental role in saving the West Baden Springs Hotel in 1996 when the resort was struggling to survive. In partnership with the Cook family of Bloomington, a massive $30 million renovation brought the West Baden Springs Hotel back to its former glory. 

Today, Indiana Landmarks gives tours of both West Baden Springs Hotel and French Lick Springs Hotel to share the rich histories. In addition to the typical tours that run on select days, Twilight Tours and Behind-The-Scenes Tours are also available. All tours depart from Landmarks Emporium, which has a location in each of the hotels. Reservations are strongly recommended for all tours given by Indiana Landmarks.
