Indy Maven Neighborhood Guide: Fletcher Place & Fountain Square

A list of neighborhood musts from neighbors in the know.
Fletcher Place and Fountain Square Neighborhood Guide

Indy Maven polled its readers, contributors, board members, and team members to create a guide for any Maven new to the neighborhood. 

Fun facts: Fletcher Place is often referred to as “Indy’s Best Angle” since Virginia Avenue bisects it. Bluebeard was named after a Kurt Vonnegut novel. And, Fletcher Place’s history lies with Calvin Fletcher, an abolitionist, banker, farmer, state senator, and the first attorney to practice law in Indianapolis. From 1839 to 1855, he owned a 269-acre farm called Wood Lawn, which later became … Fletcher Place.

Please note: We are not cartographers. Some of us here at Indy Maven may not even be great with directions. Using broad, geographic boundaries, we are highlighting the most well-recognizable neighborhoods for these guides. If a spot is within a 5-minute drive, but not technically in the ’hood, you may find it included anyway. This is a living breathing guide, ever-evolving, and a community effort. This is your guide, so please, if you see something that’s missing, share it with us in the Updates, Corrections, and Additions Center.
