House of Trepidation

September 30th – 31st, October 7th-8th, 13th-16th, 19th-23rd, 26th-31st

In the early 1900’s, Dr. Eugene Irving Belle and his wife Elizabeth relocated to Indianapolis when they were ousted from New England because of the doctor’s experimental medical procedures. He set up practice at 1929 S. Meridian Street in a 20,000 square foot warehouse that quickly earned the nickname House of Trepidation. Even though it’s been closed from 7 decades, many of the doctor’s creations are found wandering throughout the building. Visit Purgatory where Dr. Belle would hide his dead patients and venture through the Crossroads of Carnage. As you enter Belle’s Printcrazed nightmare make sure to always pay attention, as things are not always what they appear to be…
