BOHLEN, MEYER, GIBSON & ASSOCIATES

Indiana's oldest architectural firm in continuous existence, Bohlen, Meyer, Gibson & Associates, had as its founder Diedrich A. Bohlen, who came to the city in 1851 from the kingdom of Hanover, Germany. Among the many public buildings he designed were Tomlinson Hall and the City Market, the original St. Vincent's Hospital, Roberts Park Methodist Church, and the Convent of the Little Sisters of the Poor. . . . His son, Oscar D., joined the practice of his father in 1884 to form the D.A. Bohlen & Son firm that continued to build [Indianapolis] landmarks: the new St. Vincent's Hospital and the Methodist Hospital, the Murat Temple, the Majestic Building, the Banner-Whitehall Building, and the French Lick Springs Hotel. After Oscar D. Bohlen's death in 1936, his son, August C. Bohlen, continued the family tradition of "D.A. Bohlen & Son."
