Cool Indianapolis Neighborhoods- Mapleton/Fall Creek/Meridian Park

We've happened upon this area inadvertently a couple of times in the past couple of months so we felt like it was time to intentionally drive through it and snap some pics. We discovered part of it one day when we took a left on Pennsylvania off of 38th Street to head downtown without taking the usual Meridian Street. Then, one day, we couldn't get over to turn into the fairgrounds so we turned into this neighborhood and decided to keep driving through it because the houses were so cute. These pictures were taken as we drove south along Pennsylvania from 38th Street:

We like this little center at the corner of Penn and 34th Street:

We just lucked upon a gorgeous church that we didn't even know was there. It is the Tabernacle Presbyterian church at the corner of 34th St. and Central. It was erected in 1921 and their website has links in the right-hand column where you can read more about the architecture and history.

These are along Watson Road.

You could live here. Flock Realty has this one on Winthrop for sale.

Here's a link to the Meridian Park blog that talks about one of the more famous houses in the neighborhood, the Tuckaway house. We got to tour it on a home tour a few years ago and we look forward to the next tour that is shown on their blog to be coming up this summer. (and here's an article from American Bungalow that also mentions the Tuckaway house)
