Old Northside is the neighborhood just to the south of mine in Downtown Indianapolis. It was the home, during the second half of the 19th century, of the principal leaders of Indianapolis social, political, commercial and industrial life, as well as the location of leading religious and educational institutions. The Old Northside reached its peak as the fashionable residential district of Indianapolis just before 1914. In 1978 the area was placed on the federal National Register of Historic Places as an historic district. It is filled with lots of wonder full Victorian-era homes.
On September 14th, ONS is having their semi-annual home tour, where over 20 houses, neighborhood inns and museums will be open to the public between noon and 5 p.m. for a small fee.
