47th MK "Stay at Home" Tour
The largest, longest-running home tour in Indiana!
Located just 15-minutes from downtown Indianapolis, Meridian-Kessler is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Well-maintained homes with historic charm are nestled within a diverse and walkable community. Founded in 1973, the MK Home Tour was created to promote the history and unique architecture of MK while supporting the various programs and initiatives of the Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association.
This year, the MK Home Tour has been aptly titled the MK “Stay at Home” Tour. As an organization, MKNA has decided to translate the traditional tour into print. We believe this to be in the best interest of our homeowners, volunteers, and attendees. In the year 2020, the MK Home Tour has received the endorsement of the Bicentennial Commission, celebrating the Bicentennial of the City of Indianapolis!
All Meridian-Kessler residents will receive a complimentary copy of this year’s tour in print between Halloween and Thanksgiving! To purchase additional copies -or- if you live outside of the neighborhood and would like a copy (and to preview all of next year’s fantastic homes!) click here.
We look forward to sharing the 2020 Tour Homes with you in print!

Kick off summer in style while raising money for the neighborhood!
Yes and no. The MK Home Tour as we all know it – ticket purchase, walk through homes, booties, etc. – will not be happening this year. We believe translating the tour to print is in the best interest of our homeowner, volunteers, attendees, and sponsors. All Meridian-Kessler residents will receive the print edition via USPS between Halloween and Thanksgiving.

"What I love most about MK is the diversity! I can live, work and play right here in my community - while meeting a variety of people with a variety of views that all value this great community."
"I love being in a historic neighborhood that is walkable and full of character. We chose Meridian-Kessler as the place to start our family."
"As a life-long resident of MKNA, I am thrilled with the diversity of neighbors and the renewal of MKNA as well as the surrounding areas. New and old neighbors are forming wonderful relationships that strengthen our neighborhood. I particularly enjoy the Home Tour which highlights our vast variety of architecture (residential and commercial) and celebrates the history of MKNA."
"What I love most about Meridian-Kessler are the neighbors. As you drive through out neighborhood you can see the diversity in the homes which is very similar to the diversity to our neighbors, all who are trying to find ways to make Meridian Kessler a better place to live, work and play."
"I have enjoyed getting to know neighbors who serve on the MKNA Board. The energy is contagious working together for a common cause. I especially enjoy getting to know our young professionals who bring a new energy to the group."
"I love living in Meridian-Kessler because it's such a diverse community, with so much to do. We live in a particularly walkable part of the neighborhood, which makes raising a family even more wonderful."
"It’s only been a few months, but it’s already clear that (a) the board really cares about making things better and (b) our neighbors are caring and passionate about the neighborhood."
"What's not to love? From the architecture to the people - variety is at it's best here in MK! We love that! We've lived in cookie-cutter neighborhoods, and that was fine, yet my husband and I much prefer the uniqueness all around us. The other thing we love is the walkability. We meet so many people. Front porches make that possible too. We've lived in some pretty amazing places throughout this country, and Indianapolis' Meridian-Kessler neighborhood has, by far, been the best for us! "
"I love MK's diversity from housing to businesses to trees & sidewalks! I love the way our neighbors care for and are involved in the area. We are proud of and dedicated to preserving a safe & friendly place to live."
