Irvington is the largest locally protected historic district in Indianapolis.  Irvington was once the home of Butler University and was one of the first planned suburbs of Indianapolis.  There is a very strong Irvington Development Organization and often times even though its homeowners must be aware and take direction from the historical committee, matching funds for improvements are very available.

Irvington has some beautiful homes and charming restaurants and even brick streets.  In the summer there are a couple of local neighborhood ‘entertainment’ parks where bands play music just for the local folk in the area.  East Washington Street has tons of restaurants and shops to brouse – especially if you love antiques.  You’ll find a little history on the ghosts of Irvington if you ask and you’ll love the huge street festival at the end of October each year.
