Hi - I'm Brian. I am an attorney that practices in Pennsylvania. I am a former sex crimes prosecutor and my day-to-day cases are almost exclusively helping survivors of sexual abuse get justice. My team and I are ready to help.
The following article is sponsored by the lawyers of southern baptist abuse from Indiana. We are thrilled to provide visitors with an inside scoop on the many features of the borough.
Indiana is a borough in the U.S. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Also the county seat of Indiana County, it is part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area and the Indiana, PA Micropolitan Statistical Area's principal city. The borough and the whole region that surrounds it calls itself the "Christmas Tree Capital of the World" since it was the founding site of the national Christmas Tree Grower's Association. Today, many Christmas tree farms still operate in the area. However, its largest employer is the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. As of the 2010 census, Indiana has a population of 13,975 people and an area of 1.8 square miles.
Among the many properties and establishments in Indiana, there are some that tell the history of the borough. These historical landmarks include:

Breezedale, or the Sutton-Elkin House, was built between 1865 and 1868. Situated on the Indiana University of Pennsylvania campus, the two-and-a-half-story, brick main historic building is of the Late Victorian-Italianate architectural style. The historic home has been used as a dormitory and classroom space since it was added to the university in 1915. Today, it houses the Breezedale Alumni Center. On March 29, 1979, Breezedale was listed on the NRHP.
Indiana University of Pennsylvania was first charted in 1871 by Indiana County investors as the Indiana Normal School. Created under the Normal School Act of 1875, the school opened its door the same year. In the 1900s, the school's name changed to State Teachers College at Indiana and Indiana State College until it gained university status in 1965 and was subsequently renamed the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. As of fall 2019, the university has an enrollment of 8,279 undergraduate students and 2,079 postgraduate students. It had been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and is governed by a local Council of Trustees and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education's Board of Governors.
