The Bates-Hendricks House was built over a period of fifteen years by a succession of men of local and national historical importance. Thomas A. Hendricks, a congressman, senator, and governor of the State of Indiana and Vice-President under Grover Cleveland, built a new addition about 1865 which reoriented and significantly enlarged the house. The house is one of a very few of its period remaining in the city. -- Historic American Buildings Survey
