Our tour begins at the intersection of New York Street and Park Avenue, at 302 N. Park Ave.
Note: The neighborhood is regulated by the city’s permit parking program, and vehicles without permits are ticketed. Your best bet is to park in a downtown public parking lot or garage, and walk a few blocks to the neighborhood.
The home at 302 N. Park Ave., an example of Greek Revival architecture, is thought by some to be the oldest house in Indianapolis. It was built in 1835 on a different lot – now the site of the Marion County Jail – by James Brown Ray, who served as governor of Indiana from 1825 to 1831. It has been relocated twice, with its ultimate destination being here in Lockerbie Square.
