About The Indianapolis Scottish Society
The Indianapolis Scottish Society was formed in 1983 as a place for all people to celebrate Scottish heritage, culture and history . From humble beginnings as a small group meeting in an apartment clubhouse, the organization has grown to over 200 members.
The Scottish Society of Indianapolis does not require its members to prove their Scottish heritage or linage. It seeks those that enjoy and simply love celebrating all things Scottish. The Society has wide diversity in its members, and is composed of genealogists, historians, reactors, pipers, dancers, story tellers and those drawn to the history, heritage and culture of the Scots and Scotland.
