The 34th Street gate, located at 3400 Boulevard Place, was built in 1885. It was designed by Indianapolis architect Adolph Scherer and completed just in time for the funeral procession of Vice President Thomas A. Hendricks on November 30, 1885. It includes a triple-arched stone gate made of Indiana Limestone. Just inside the gate is the Waiting Station, which replaced a small caretaker’s cottage built in 1864. Originally the cemetery’s administrative office, the Waiting Station is a stone-trimmed brick structure with decorative encased tile. Its interior is decorated with intricately carved oak and cherry woodwork and features wooden Venetian blinds, among the first installed in the United States.
