Artist's Description

The historic Rickenbaugh House is located on the banks of Celina Lake within the Indian-Celina Lakes Recreation Area of the Hoosier National Forest.

In 1874 Jacob Rickenbaugh, a local tanner and farmer, hired three Belgium stone masons to build a house constructed out of local sandstone outcrops and wood. The sandstone blocks are 3 feet thick and serve as interior and exterior walls. The Rickenbaugh House not only served as the residence for Jacob, his wife Elizabeth, and 10 children; but as the local post office from 1878 until 1951; and temporarily as a church meeting house.

The House was acquired by the Forest Service in 1968. In 1984 the House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
