The Historic Meridian Park neighborhood was farmland until the turn of the century. Then a bridge over Fall Creek and the personal automobile made commuting downtown much easier. This suburban environment, distanced from the noise and smoke of downtown, quickly became desirable and supplanted Woodruff Place and Irvington as the most exclusive and fashionable neighborhoods of their day.
Historic Meridian Park is a vibrant, safe neighborhood with a strong sense of community and connectivity. The social fabric of the neighborhood promotes respect for diversity, helping one another, and pride in our homes. Residents of all ages appreciate the unique aspects of living in a historic downtown community and recognize the important role they play in shaping its future.
