Washington Park Launches New Website
Washington Park, a neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places, is comprised of 113 properties in the southwest corner of Meridian~Kessler.
The neighborhood is beaming with historically-significant structures, many of which were designed by nationally-reconized architects and inhabited by early community leaders. These leaders moved to the area, established its boundaries and platted its lots.
The homes, many of which still exist in their original form, are a part of Indianapolis’ living history. Many Washington Park residents are interested in keeping the character of their neighborhood and are considering the establishment of a historic area with oversight by the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission.
