Across the historic and diverse neighborhoods, you’ll find unique homes of many styles: foursquares, mid-century ranches, bungalows, Victorians and classic Craftsmans. In Irvington, the largest Eastside neighborhood and one that’s protected by the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission, you’ll love the beautifully preserved homes, nestled in a neighborhood committed to preserving its authenticity.
As Indy’s largest locally protected historic district, Irvington was founded in 1870 as a suburb of Indianapolis and was later annexed in 1902. The neighborhood is named after Washington Irving and was home to Butler University’s first campus.
