HUNI: Historic Neighborhood Tours Go Digital
In celebration of the City’s Bicentennial, Historic Urban Neighborhoods of Indianapolis (HUNI) digitized 15 historic neighborhood walking and biking tours covering 13 of Indy’s historic neighborhoods.
These FREE tours talk about significant architecture as well as prominent business and civic leaders within these neighborhoods who have shaped our community over the past 200 years.
The tours are currently available online via PocketSights — a free GPS guided tour app and website. These tours can be done in person via the app (preferred method) or from the comfort of your own home via the PocketSights website. Additionally, HUNI is in the process of developing its own companion website for the tours at tours.HUNIindy.org.
Neighborhoods included in the digitization efforts in order of proximity to Victory are Lockerbie Square, Old Northside, Ransom Place, St. Joseph, Holy Cross, Garfield Park, Herron Morton Place, Historic Meridian Park, Watson Park, Riverside, Irvington, Old Speedway, and Fort Benjamin Harrison.
The digitization of these tours has been made possible through a Historic Preservation Education Grant from Indiana Landmarks, Indiana Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Humanities as well as through a Marion County Historic Preservation Fund grant which is a collaborative effort between Indiana Landmarks and CICF.
