Exploring five historic neighborhoods by foot.

In honor of Historic Preservation Month, Indiana Landmarks invited the public to take walking tours of an historic Indianapolis neighborhood every Thursday in May. Tour included Old Speedway, Cottage Home, Meridian Park, Lockerbie Square, and Old Northside. Participants learned the rich history of each area and its revitalization, saw the range in housing styles, gained an understanding of average sales prices, and toured the interior of a home. These 90-minute tours were staged jointly by Indiana Landmarks and HUNI.  If you missed out this year, the tours are sure to be back by popular demand in May 2015 featuring different historic neighborhoods with active HUNI participation.

For the past several years, Indiana Landmarks and HUNI have staged a walking tour each Thursday in May, spotlighting four different historic Indianapolis neighborhoods. The 2016 tours included Old Speedway, Herron-Morton Place, Watson Park, and Holy Cross. The 90-minute tours included a one- to one-and-a-half-mile walk, led by residents of the neighborhoods and assisted by Indiana Landmarks docents. Guides told the history of each area and its revitalization. Look for our tours again next May.
