Fletcher Place and Holy Rosary-Danish Church neighborhood flow one into the next. Both are growing communities while staying true to their historical past. Residents have regular neighborhood meetings and numerous social events including the Italian Street Festival. Many Holy Rosary residents are descendants of Italian families that have lived in the neighborhood for generations. Friends gather at the local Edna Balz Lacy Park for picnics, bocce ball and sand volleyball. Virginia Avenue links these neighborhoods to the Mile Square and Fountain Square, home to an eclectic art and live music scene.
FLETCHER PLACE /
HOLY ROSARY-DANISH CHURCH
Fletcher Place Historic District developed along the Virginia Avenue diagonal and is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Its residents made contributions to the development of religion, commerce, and education in Indianapolis. The neighborhood illustrates how the south side of town was settled, and in its combination of cottage and high style architecture, mixing of land uses and density, is representative of early Indianapolis as a whole.
