Some of those magnificient old buildings were torn down, but a few remain.LLoydGeorge said:
Yes, all the above buildings were demolished. The Marion Couny Court House was one of the greatest losses. It was demolished in 1963 after the completion of the very ugly high-rise City-County Building in 1962.LLoydGeorge said:Thanks for the info.
Are the following gone?
The Park Theatre
Indiana Nat'l Bank
Marion Cty Court House
It's a shame if they are. Nonetheless, Indianapolis has a lot of nice old buildings for a city its size. In fact, it has a much greater percentage than Chicago. But for a few tall buildings, Indy looks like a mini-DC.
Go to www.emporis.com and look up Indianapolis and then look at both the high-rise and low-rise sections. You will find many pictures of historic buildings that are still standing. The site states whether the building is still standing or demolished. Some examples are the Scottish Rite Cathedral, the Antheneum, the Central Library, the Walker Theatre, the Circle Tower, etc.LLoydGeorge said:Can you guys post photos of the old buildings (other than the Statehouse) that survived?
