St. Joseph historic district is bound by I-65, Central Ave., Ft. Wayne Ave. and Pennsylvania Street. Ft. Wayne Avenue runs parallel to the famous Massechusets Ave. (Mass. Ave.) which is significant because both streets run at an angle. Alexander Ralston’s 1821 plan for Indianapolis created diagonal streets radiating from the center of Ralston's Mile Square. The diagonal streets of Indianapolis are known for their odd, flatiron-shaped buildings that give flair and a unique identity to the city. City planners later found diagonal streets meant headaches and traffic jams, so many were eliminated by demolition. Ft. Wayne Avenue is one of only a few surviving diagonal streets in the city.
Veterans’ Memorial Plaza is another noteworthy site, located at the southern tip of the St. Joseph historic district. Completed in 1930, the plaza houses a 100-foot tall Obelisk fountain and stunning World War II that draws visitors from miles around. In 1975, the park was part of a beautification effort for the Bicentennial celebration of the Declaration of Independence. Green spaces and trees were added. On the northern section of the park, our national flag and a flag from each state can be seen blowing in the wind. Veterans' Memorial Plaza is situated just north of the Indiana War Memorial and is one of the downtown area's most popular venues for outdoor events.
For the complete downtown experience, turn to St. Joseph historic district, fix your eyes on large trees amid the sidewalks or follow the creeping ivy to the tips of red brick buildings.
