INDIANAPOLIS: A tiny downtown Indianapolis building that’s one of the oldest-surviving original White Castle restaurants is getting a makeover.


Indiana Landmarks plans to repair the 90-year-old castle-like building’s white glazed brick exterior and then sell it with a preservation covenant.


The nonprofit recently bought the building for $1 from the city of Indianapolis. The small building opened in 1927, but served up its last White Castle slider in 1979. It later housed a real estate office and a National Guard recruiting center.


Mark Dollase is Indiana Landmarks’ vice president of preservation services. He says the roughly 200-square-foot building is considered the third-oldest White Castle built by the Columbus, Ohio-based chain that operates nearly 400 restaurants in 13 states.
