"The Cabin at Wildflower Woods" lies nestled on the shore of Sylvan Lake, near Rome City, Indiana. It is the beloved home and final resting place of Gene Stratton-Porter, one of Indiana’s most widely read authors and one of the world’s first nature photographers and conservationists.
Gene Stratton-Porter was an individual that held true to her beliefs and never let societal norms stop her from achieving her dreams. The Gene Stratton-Porter Memorial Society seeks to share her legacy with visitors by telling her story and making her achievements relevant for today's society and future generations. We invite you to join us for a day, a tour, an event or online to learn more about this amazing Hoosier. Tours of the Cabin begin on the hour, every hour between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, between 1 p.m. and 4 pm. on Sunday. The last tour of the day begins at 4 p.m.
The Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site is now closed for regular Cabin tours. The grounds are open every day from dawn until dusk. Enjoy the walking trails and experience the natural beauty of winter. Ice anglers are welcome but we ask that you read and respect the rules of the Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site during fishing season.

Bird watchers of all ages and experience levels are invited to participate in the inaugural Gene Stratton-Porter Christmas Bird Count. This National Audubon Program is celebrating 114 years of citizen science as birders seek and count as many birds as possible on a single day around the Christmas holidays. Teams will be assigned an area to cover including the Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site in Rome City, Sylvan Lake, ACRES nature preserves, Bixler Lake Park and more in our Christmas Bird Count circle. At noon, we'll gather at the GSP Carriage House for a spaghetti lunch and to review our count data so far. Birders are asked to bring a dessert or drink. Please contact GSP Site Manager Dave Fox at
