Lockerbie Square in Downtown Indianapolis
Tonight I am meeting some friends for dinner. I didn't know where the restaurant was, since I had not been there before. To my absolute delight, it was in the Lockerbie Square area of downtown. You see, I know where Lockerbie Square is, but give me an address where I have never been and I can not tell you for certain exactly what is on the corner. It is a disconnect in the wiring of my brain!
While waiting for eveyone to arrive for dinner, I couldn't resist the temptation to walk down the street and take some pictures. I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a great photographer. I just like to take pictures and sometimes I surprise myself. So, I persist......
Walking down a street of remodeled homes from the 1800 and 1900's for me, is like letting a child loose in a candy store. These homes are absolutely amazing. I could walk through these neighborhoods for hours and never tire of the beauty and architecture.
The revitalized Historic Districts in Indianapolis has brought renewed life to the streets and homes here. Many of the people here are new, some have lived here a very long time and have seen the changes first hand.
I met Carol, one of the residents there, while walking. She has lived in Lockerbie Square for 17 years. She allowed me to take some pictures of her gardens and the outside of her home. I have posted the tour separately.
Look at some of the beautiful homes here:
