The history of Herron-Morton Place is as rich and diverse as its architectural mix is today. In 1859, the Indiana State Board of Agriculture purchased this large segment of undeveloped land (then known as Henderson’s Grove) to establish a new Indiana State Fairgrounds. However, when the Civil War began, Governor Oliver P. Morton requested the area be used as an induction center for Indiana soldiers and renamed it Camp Morton.After the war, Indiana reclaimed the fairgrounds. In 1890, the fair was moved north of the city to its current 38th Street location. Herron-Morton Place was then platted out and construction began for 280 residential lots. “Herron” was added to the neighborhood’s name to reflect affiliation with John Herron and his famed School of Art. John Herron gave funds to construct a new building and museum on the south edge of the neighborhood in the early 1900s.
Current residents of Herron-Morton Place love this area, enjoy gathering for neighborhood socials and take great pride in their homes and green spaces. Since 1950, this historic neighborhood has also been host to the famed annual Talbot Street Art Fair. Residents can be seen preparing for and cleaning up after this large event – showing just how much they care about their neighborhood family. Rich in history, abounding with a great mix of architecture and full of caring neighbors, the Herron-Morton historic neighborhood is 25 square blocks of quiet elegance and is bursting with style and grace.
