Common Room & Terrace

One of the most striking venues for fellowship and conversation in Indianapolis is the CTS Common Room. With a massive fireplace, a dramatic vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows providing a breath-taking view of the canal and White River, the Common Room is truly an asset to the entire community.  Built more than 50 years ago, the Common Room requires significant restoration to return it to the warm, graceful hospitality for which it was originally designed: an inspiring and welcoming place for reflective moments and  joyful celebrations.
