Historic Benton House
The annual Benton House Book Sale will be held July 21-23 on the grounds of the historic Benton House. The hours are 5-8 p.m. on Friday, July 21, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday, July 22, and from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 23 ($5 bag sale day). There is no admission charge for the sale. The Benton House is located at 312 South Downey Avenue in Irvington. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card. (To offset merchant costs we will be asking people to pay $1 to use their credit card.).
Our sale is one of the largest book sales in Indianapolis with thousands of titles to browse through. Prices range from $1 for paperbacks to $2 for hard covers, and children’s books are at a special low price. On Sunday, you can buy a bag of books for just $5! (We provide the bag).
Proceeds from the sale benefit the Benton House, a Second Empire home built in 1873. It was the home of Allen R. Benton, twice president of Butler University. The Irvington Historic Landmarks Foundation was founded in 1966 to purchase and restore the Benton House; in 1969, the Benton House Association was formed to maintain the house and promote it as rental space for weddings, showers and other events.iCal
