A new digital collection in the Ball State University Libraries Digital Media Repository highlights an important era in Indiana’s industrial history by providing online access to architectural drawings of a distillery once owned and operated by one of the largest distillers in the United States.
The Schenley Distillery Architectural Drawings digital collection includes over 200 architectural plans for alcoholic beverage distillation and fermentation facilities operated by Schenley Distillers Corporation and its various subsidiaries in Lawrenceburg and Greendale, Indiana between 1934 and 1951. The plans were drawn by draftsman Frank C. Hall and include both original drawings and printed reproductions.
|Industrial Alcohol Plant No. 226, Schenley Distilleries, Inc.|
The Schenley Distillery architectural plans were generously donated to Archives and Special Collections in the University Libraries by Milton A. Masing. The digital collection is accessible online in the Ball State University Libraries Digital Media Repository.
