The Old Northside Indianapolis Homes for Sale

Located about a mile North and several blocks east of downtown Indianapolis, the Old Northside historic district is a beautifully revitalized piece of history.  During the late 19th century, residing in the “Northside” was a mark of affluence, with the area north of Fall Creek designated as the most prestigious.  Well-to-do political, social, commercial, religious and educational leaders chose to build homes here.   Read More...

Butler University (founded as North Western Christian University) began in 1855 within the boarders of Old Northside.  Founder Ovid Butler called this area home, as well did our 23rd President Benjamin Harrison.  The historic significance of the area is magnified when you walk through one of the home museums or gaze upon the glorious mansions and homesites located here.  

The heyday of the The Old Northside was around 1913-1914. The world wars brought dramatic decline in the area, when more than half of the original houses were subsequently demolished. Major rebuilding and revitalization efforts began in the late 1970s. Brick sidewalks have been repaired, reminding us of when residents wearing expensive leather shoes and tailored garments stood along the fences and iron gates waiting to board the mule-drawn trolley.    

Most of the renovated Victorian-era homes in Old Northside give us clues into the areas’ rich past. Impressive brick and wood frame Italianate and Queen Anne mansions are the highlight of the architecture lining the streets. You will also find new construction homes, designed to historically fit in and compliment the older existing homes. Whether built in the 19th century or the 21st century, the structures residing in Old Northside are an adored and cherished part of the history of Indianapolis.  

The Old Northside of today is as warm and inviting as it was in days gone by, yet is close to all that a bustling downtown has to offer. Residents can participate in local historic district social gatherings or enjoy a taste of the neighboring metropolis. Nearby theaters, art galleries, sports arenas, stadiums, museums and downtown Indianapolis attractions are too numerous to count. Old Northside historic district is the definition of a premier residential community that has it all!
