Recent ILI Events

The MIA-BSI Study Tour was held in our limestone belt on Sept. 10 - 13.  The ILI sponsored the opening dinner on Sunday evening with a great presentation of the restoration of the West Baden Hotel and French Lick Springs.  Several tours of Indiana Limestone quarries and fabrication facilities took place Monday through Wednesday.

The ILI was at the Biltmore mansion on Sept. 18, 2017 to update photographs for ILI productions.  The 120 + year building still looks like it was built in the past 25 years. The mansion was constructed with Indiana Limestone from the Dark Hollow quarry near Oolitic.

ILI also attended the CSI architects show in Indianapolis on Sept. 28, 2017.

The 2016 Fall Meeting took place October 23, 24 & 25 in and around Bloomington, IN and the Bloomington Convention Center.  We had a wonderful tour and educational discussion by the Indiana Geological Survey at the Maple Hill Quarry on Sunday. On Monday, Todd gave a summary of the plans for the 23'rd edition ILI Handbook during a Roundtable. The Mini-Trade Show was a big success with over a dozen of our associate members set up to show and discuss their products and services.The reception and dinner was wonderful as usual, with speaker Carol Faenzi giving an informative program about the quarries and carvers from Italy.  On Tuesday, four groups teed off at the Stone Crest Golf course for a beautiful day of golf, during our annual scramble.  4 under was the low round scored by two teams.  Make your plans to attend next year, at the same time period.
