#ThursdayDoors — Woodruff Place Town Hall

Last winter three of my #ThursdayDoors posts were from Woodruff Place (Link 1, Link 2, Link 3). Historic Woodruff Place is one of Indianapolis’s lil neighborhoods. This summer, I captured its town hall.



I love the doors, but as ever, I find Woodruff Place charming.

#ThursdayDoors is part of an inspired post series run by Norm Frampton. To see other doors of interest, or to share your own, click the link.

I may be late getting to your #ThursdayDoors posts today. The girls and I will be touring the cathedral (doorscursion perhaps) and lunching with fellow blogger Benson. And the high is sixty-freakin-two, Woooooot!

    Your photos are lovely. The colors + style of that building are wonderful before you even see the front doors. Coolness.

    LOL. Very impressive catch. The Woodruff Town Hall is not easily caught. Due to its natural shyness it is hard to approach much less photograph. Seriously those are some amazing doors. If I had those I think I would put my bed right in front of them. On the inside of course. Sleeping outdoors in Indiana in December would not be good. See you soon.

    Beautiful doors, Joey! I love the building, but that entrance, with the gently sloped and curved side lights, oh my, that is beautiful.

    Enjoy your doorscursion (well your whole day 😉

  8. You certainly used the right word – charming. What a beautiful building with the gingerbread trim and the welcoming bench. This certainly is a beautiful community. 🙂

  9. Stunning door. I really enjoyed this. 🙂

    We have a great door in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen, that called Bab al-Yemen (the gate of Yemen). It is the main gate of Sana’a old fortified wall, on the southern extremity of the walled city, and it was built before 1,000 years.

  10. Such an unusual building for a town hall, Joey. At first glance I thought it was a church. Then again, I suppose a lot of ‘petitions’ have been made there, too. 😉

    That building is really impressive and stands out. I love the doors too, solid and slightly imposing!
    Hope you enjoyed your day and lunch with Benson 🙂

    Wow, doesn’t the white surround shoot the doors right out at you. They are rather nice….

      Oh yes, I’d forgotten about your thing for Storybook houses! I do have a peg in my brain about the one house you wanted to see all of, but every time I see it, nothing’s changed. One day!

  17. Great doors! I like that style of building and trim work. Tudor style I think. I’m looking forward to seeing the results of your doorscursion with Benson. 🙂
