The Old Northside boasts a wealth of history starting from its beginnings as a prominent residential neighborhood for the City of Indianapolis during the late 19th century. During this time, this neighborhood was the prime location for the city’s wealthy families. The neighborhood began an era of revitalization beginning in the 1960’s and received its historical designation in 1978 after adopting a plan for preserving the architecture and history of the neighborhood.
Today, the Old Northside neighborhood continues to be a major cultural hub for Indianapolis, featuring some of Indianapolis’ most renowned restaurants, bars, coffee shops and historical homes. While within walking distance from Indianapolis' city center, the neighborhood is also home to two beautiful parks, Shawn Grove Park and Great Oak Commons. The continued growth, reinvestment and development in the Old Northside neighborhood, particularly along “Tinker Street” make this location an ideal and unique place to call home.
