               Huddleston Farmhouse Inn & Museum 

               The historic structure is located on U. S. 40 just west of Cambridge City

               and is open to the public. The staff and volunteers of the Museum

               provide many, varied activities throughout the year to commemorate

               the history of the farmhouse.

 

               Opera House

               A grand Italianate three-story commercial building was built in 1868 on                 the north side of Main Street. The Opera House was the setting for a variety of entertainment venues: commencements, dances, meetings, conventions, concerts, minstrels, musicals, traveling shows, plays, flower shows, dinners, speeches, and comedies. The first floor of the building is still in use, but the Opera House has been silent since 1923 when a new high school provided a more modern auditorium for an entertainment center.

 

Overbeck House

Internationally recognized Overbeck Pottery was hand-produced in Cambridge City from 1911-1955 by four daughters of John and Sarah Overbeck. The family home and studio is located at 520 East Church Street and is presently a private home. An Overbeck Museum displaying many of the sister's art is located at the Cambridge City Public Library on the lower floor.

 

               Vinton House

               The historic structure is located on Main Street in downtown

               Cambridge City near the site of the Whitewater Canal. The Vinton

               House provided lodging for guests that were being transported on the

               Whitewater Canal. It is currently being restored by Western Wayne

               Heritage, Inc., a group of citizens interested in preserving Western

               Wayne's past. The Vinton House is now a 2-story antique shop.
