Indy Maven polled its readers, contributors, board of directors, and team members to create a guide for any Maven new to the neighborhood.
Fun facts: The Irvington Halloween Festival (2023) will be in it’s 77th year. The Luminaria (typically the weekend closest to the Winter Solstice) is another great time to walk the historic neighborhood, see the historic homes lit up for the holidays, and meet Santa and Crampus at the Irving Circle Park. Did you know that from 1875 to 1928, Irvington was the first home of Butler University? Now you do.
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.
