This Magnificent English Colonial home, built in the year 1929, is nestled on the banks of the White River and Indianapolis Central Canal in a town that was known as Shooters Hill until 1951. Acquired by Butler University in 2018, the house is host to guests of Butler, Christian Theological Seminary (CTS), and the Indianapolis community. It is the focal point of University Event's newly developing guest housing options at Butler University, and host to a variety of events. These events have included departmental retreats and alumni wine and dessert tasting gatherings. With new life and daily upgrades, the Hospitality House will serve the community of Butler University families, visitors, and guests for years to come!Hospitality House on South Campus at Butler University
