Still northeast of the center, but farther in than Indianapolis’s Old Northside, there is Woodruff Place.
Ah, Woodruff Place is a magical land for Joeys, where much of time has stood still for about 200 years.
Woodruff Place holds many of the city’s Grand Dames of Homes. I mean, massive old homes, deep and wide, plenty in the 5-6000 square foot category, with outbuildings two or three times the size of my house. Garages, former stables, enormous barns. Some serve as guest quarters, but many have been turned into duplexes and apartments.
Due to the planning and landscaping of Woodruff Place, while you’re there, it feels like you’re far from the city, when in fact, you’re smack dab in it.
It is so charming.
In June 2017, there will be a tour, and I do believe Beauty Queen and I need to take that tour.
Here’s today’s door:
Yes, the porch is crumbling, but try to remember, the porch belongs to a ‘small’ brick castle, okay?
Would you like to tour Woodruff Place?
