Peru, Indiana – Carriage Manor Estate

April 30, 2019 

Today we drove to our friend’s house in Peru. The Carriage Manor Estate is a beautiful home with a lot of history. Our friends took us to their old stomping grounds to show us around. We had lunch at this place called Streamliner which is located in Rochester. After lunch, we then drove to Culver which was nice to see because that’s where Tim grew up. While we were in Culver they took us to this amazing high school called Culver Military Academy. Afterwards, we went back to Rochester to Evergreen for a nice dinner before heading back to Peru.

Today Tim & Cindy took us on a tour of Peru.  We saw the house where Cole Porter grew up and then the house he built after he became famous. We then saw where the circus practices. Apparently, Peru was known as the circus capital of the world. Read this article about it.

Today we drove to visit our friend’s Jan and Al who we met on a cruise in South America. They took us on a tour of downtown Indianapolis and then we went back to their lovely house which was nestled in the woods. It was a beautiful home in this quiet spot. We got there early enough to go and grab a bite to eat for lunch. We ate at this amazing place called Bluebeard indy.

We went to eat dinner at a famous place called St. Elmo’s Steakhouse.
