The district encompasses four contributing buildings on the campus of the former Soldiers Home.

Funding for the home was approved by the Indiana State Legislature in 1888, and building commenced in 1890. Most of the original buildings were demolished in the 1950s. The property continued to be administered by the Indiana Department of Veterans' Affairs as the Indiana Veterans’ Home

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
