Photographs are allowed everywhere on the grounds. Photographs are also allowed inside the Carriage House and Study, but we ask that you not use a flash.

Professional photographers are welcome to use our grounds for photo sessions. Please realize that we lock the gates by 4:45 p.m. and schedule your sessions accordingly. We do ask that no more than one vehicle parks inside our parking lot for photography sessions. Street parking is available on Elston Avenue. We are also very appreciative when professional photographers secure a $25 personal membership in the Lew Wallace Study Preservation Society.
