Cottages of the Near Eastside / A Crossing Through Irish Hill

Cottages of the Near Eastside / A Crossing Through Irish Hill

The two sides of this simply-painted underpass mural highlight two of Indianapolis’ oldest Eastside residential areas.  These neighborhoods were once home to the thousands of immigrants that flooded into Indianapolis during the late 19th and early 20th centuries in search of a fresh start.

Cottages of the Near Eastside, on the east wall of the underpass, showcases the facades of homes in the Holy Cross, Cottage Home and Windsor Park neighborhoods as well as in Fountain Square and irish Hill
