Old Normal Hall

Membership & Rental

Membership: One resource for Old Normal is Historic Ladoga's membership base.  Now, more than ever, we need your help, your talents, your ideas, and a little bit of your time.  You may have already helped us in the past, and, for that, we are truly grateful.

Rental:  Preserved with you in mind, the Old Normal Hall is located on the Northwest corner of Main (State Rd 234) and Harrison Street in Ladoga, IN.  Our address is 100 Harrison Street, Ladoga, IN  47954.


Historic Ladoga is currently celebrating its 21st anniversary.  From it's humble beginnings back in 1994 and the enthusiastic support of our founding members, we've become a truly remarkable little organization.  The hard work and perseverance of a small band of Ladoga residents has not only saved and restored one of Montgomery County's finest buildings, we've created an organization that benefits a multitude of people.

The memories we've created over the past 21 years have been priceless.  Literally hundreds of children have attended our annual Easter egg hunts (now co-sponsored by Zoey's Zoo & Old Normal and held here on the grounds of Old Normal), Halloween parties, and Christmas parties of past.  Hundreds of adults have attended all kinds of events at our beautiful building:  anniversaries, weddings, reunions, dances, dinners, service organization meetings, art classes, and more!

Just like you, we've had our share of ups and downs.  The economy has affected us, we've lost some members, and our operating expenses are sky high.  That's the bad news.  The good news is we're looking toward tomorrow and that's where you can help.

Our greatest resource is our membership base.  Now, more than ever, we need your help, your talents, your ideas, and a little bit of your time.  You may have helped us in the past, and, for that, we are truly grateful.

Like every organization that has a building to maintain, we face steep operating costs on a monthly basis.  We do not receive any tax dollars and rely on fundraising activities, donations, and membership dollars to meet our expenses.

We want a brighter tomorrow and we're hoping that you will want to join us in as many ways as you can.  Whether you are already a member or are new to Historic Ladoga, would you please join us by paying your membership dues AND getting involved?  We welcome your ideas and appreciate your support.

We possess, quite possibly, the finest restored building in Montgomery County.  With your help, we hope to assemble the greatest group of active members of any organization in Central Indiana.

As always, we have lots of great events and activities planned at The Old Normal in the coming year for the entire community.  Many of these events have continued on for several years, and others are in their infancy.  Below you will find a list of some of the annual events as well as other activities that occur here at Old Normal.  As is well known, any event or activity takes many willing hands to achieve its success.  Hopefully, you as a potential new or renewed member will see something that peaks your interest.

Please get involved in any way that you can.  We want you, and The Old Normal needs you!  Think about it.


Yes!  I would like to support Historic Ladoga, Inc. and its programs through my membership and/or volunteering of my time.  (If something peaks your interest in the list below, we will do a followup with more information and would love to have your participation to make the event a success!  On behalf of the Board of Historic Ladoga, Inc. Thank You.)
