Meridian Park Indianapolis Homes for Sale
Meridian Park, located north of Indianapolis, is bounded by Pennsylvania Street and Washington Boulevard, between 30th and 34th streets. The area remained undeveloped farmland until the turn of the 20th century.
With the addition of a bridge over Fall Creek and the availability of family vehicles, Meridian Park became an attractive option away from the air and noise pollution of downtown Indianapolis. Executives and well-heeled professionals were drawn to the affluent suburb.
Architectural trends moved away from formal Victorian-era styles to functional family living spaces. The neighborhood and homes in Meridian Park reflect an era of American Foursquare and Arts and Crafts homes, built in the early 1900s.
The Arts and Crafts Movement originated in England in the late 1800s, spreading across Europe and North America and influencing architecture and design until the 1930s. The movement sought a return to beauty and fine handcrafted work, as opposed to the industrialized tone of the era. Traditional methods, simple forms and local materials were also part of the movement.
The homes and buildings in Meridian Park still show this influence today, showcasing natural materials like stucco, brick and tile, as well as visible structural elements. The romance of the era remains in details like stained glass windows, sleeping porches and lovely tiled fireplaces. Residents of Meridian Park treasure the area’s rich history and are dedicated to preserving the architectural heritage of the area.
