Skiles Test Nature Park, sometimes called Skiles Test Nature Area is an east side Indianapolis park on land bequeathed by Skiles Test, on which once sat the supposed haunted house, The House of Blue Lights.
Skiles Test, a local business man, lived on the property from 1913 to 1964. The property once had a miniature railway and a pool with bathhouses, elevators, and highdives.
In the 1990s, the park became the subject of controversy because it was being used as a tea room by local gay men, often in the sight of children. A teacher from New Castle, Indiana, was caught exposing himself to a student and arrested in 2004.
