Return to "Homes for Sale in Indianapolis Historic Districts"

Originally purchased in 1859 to host the Indiana State Fair, the area was platted for residential development in the 1890s, and quickly became one of Indianapolis' most elegant neighborhoods. Morton Place, as it was known, was named for Indiana governor Oliver Morton. By the turn of the century, it was home to many of Indiana's politicians, physicians, business leaders, and artists.

Impressionist artists T.C. Steele and William Forsyth founded the "Hoosier Group Art School" here, followed by the "John Herron Art Institute." The Art Institute was funded by a bequest from local art admirer John Herron, whose home stood on the site.

In 1906, the school hired architects Vonnegut & Bohn to plan a museum. This Italian Renaissance Revival building includes the works of Renaissance and Baroque artists, Leonardo da Vinci, Peter Paul Rubens, Albrecht Durer, Diego Velazquez, and Michelangelo. The Herron Museum later became the "Indianapolis Museum of Art."

The neighborhood thrived until the Great Depression, during which many houses were subdivided into apartments as the proliferation of the automobile lured the affluent farther away from the heart of Indianapolis. In the 1950s - '70s many more homes were lost to fire or demolition (due to neglect). In 1983, Herron-Morton Place was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and became a historic preservation district in 1986.

Herron-Morton Place, Indiana hosts several popular annual events, including the famed "Talbot Street Art Fair," a juried art fair held each June. The Herron-Morton Place Neighborhood Foundation plans several events each year that raise money for the Herron-Morton Place Historic Park. Included among these are the popular "Oktoberfest" in late September, the bi-annual "Home Tour," and the annual "Rock 'N' Romp" event for families.

Herron-Morton Place, is just a five-minute drive to downtown, but far enough away to feel like a sleepy suburb. Parks with new playgrounds reflect the affluence of the neighborhood, yet some younger families manage to afford it. Those families have the charter "Herron High School," lauded in Newsweek and The Washington Post, as an option for their children.

The Herron-Morton Place Neighborhood Association was formed in 1976 to "combat decay and deterioration of the neighborhood; to initiate, operate, encourage and otherwise assist acts which protect and revitalize the residential character of the neighborhood, and provide residents with the structures, environment, amenities and services which create and support a stable and healthy community."

The revitalization of Fall Creek Place to the north early in this century, set the stage for the high-end reconstruction projects happening in Herron-Morton Place today. Several of the large, three-story Victorian houses still stand, many restored, some converted into upscale condominiums. Today, a stroll through this neighborhood will reveal several half-million-dollar restorations in progress.
