JTV Hill


The park is named after James Thomas Vastine Hill, who was one of Indianapolis’ first African-American attorneys when he was admitted to the Indiana bar in 1886. He rose to the level of deputy prosecutor before retirement. A large portrait mural of JTV Hill along with an abstracted rendering of the “scales of Justice” honors his achievements.

The artist, Barb Stahl, is an active mural painter in Indianapolis.
