Built in 1835 by Andrew Wylie, first president of Indiana University, the Wylie House is now a historic house museum, open to the public and serving as an academic resource for classes and research. Wylie House is located just southwest of IU Bloomington campus, near the original campus location. Collections include family artifacts, photographs, archival materials, and digital exhibits.

Mission Statement: Wylie House Museum actively supports the academic mission of Indiana University and engages visitors in immersive and inclusive histories associated with the home.
Wylie House Museum is built upon the ancestral homelands and resources of the Miami, Delaware, Potawatami, and Shawnee people. Wylie House honors them as past, present, and future caretakers of the land.
