The Indiana Glass Trail is an Indiana Artisan sponsored program designed to raise awareness of the glass arts. Central Indiana has a rich history of glass production and beautiful glass works, dating back to the late 1800s, which is reflected in the tour stops from Madison and Howard counties to Delaware and Hamilton counties. Hamilton County tour stops would feature antique glass as well as modern glass artists and their creations.
Nickel Plate Arts
Another Indiana Artisan sponsored program, the Nickel Plates Arts includes the Town of Fishers and travels north through Hamilton County to Tipton, Ind. It showcases art, food and history along the historic Nickel Plate rail line, a line still in use for Indiana Transportation Museum excursions. Tour stops would include a ride on an ITM excursion, a heritage adventure trip along the White River with a local historian, and visits to galleries and restaurants in Noblesville's downtown historic district.
