WEST LAFAYETTE – A local treasure of world-renowned architectural greatness will be part of an online auction that will take visitors to celebrated Indiana landmarks.

The John E. Christian House — a Frank Lloyd Wright home located in West Lafayette — is part of an auction benefiting Indiana Landmarks. The nonprofit’s annual fundraiser, Rescue Party, will be via Facebook Live at 7 p.m. April 29.

Indiana Landmarks’ President Marsh Davis will auction exclusive experiences and overnight stays, the nonprofit detailed in a release, including getaway packages to the historic West Baden Springs Hotel and the recently opened Bottleworks Hotel in the former Coca-Cola bottling plant near downtown Indianapolis.

In addition, a silent auction, which opened at 12 a.m. Monday and goes until 12 p.m. May 2, offers a chance to bid on other getaways, including a private tour of the restoration in-progress at Samara, the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed John and Catherine Christian House.

Other visits include a private tour of the Miller House and Garden in Columbus and a stay overnight on a hilltop at the restored Beem House in Spencer.
