History

Founded in 1820 by Wesley McCormick, Indianapolis was chosen as the capital of the new state. Throughout the Civil War it was an important base for the Union. Along with the construction of the Madison and Indianapolis Railroad in 1847, the city saw a rise in population and industry that remain to this day. Residents head to the Morris-Butler House Museum on North Park Avenue to learn about late the 1860s and view the Second Empire style architecture and decorations. This historic home conducts annual Christmas candlelight tours and events such as the Alice in Wonderland Tea Party. Catch a diverse array of art and theater performances in the 1920s Irvington Lodge on East Washington Street. Get into a spooky mood at its annual Halloween Festival. Head to East 67th Street to peruse local arts and crafts at the annual Broad Ripple Art Fair.

Transportation

Residents of Devington rely heavily on personal cars to run errands, get to recreational activities and commute to work. Walking and most biking is best saved as a leisurely activity, though a few roads provide bike lanes. The IndyGo provides public bus routes around the city, with several stops in Devington. Locals hop onto US 52 to Interstate 70 to access downtown and other areas of the city and state. Public parking comes in the form of reasonably priced metered spots and garages or lots in more commercial areas, and free street parking in residential areas. It's possible on occasion to hail a cab on some numbered streets, but scheduling a taxi from one of the many taxi services proves more reliable. Car sharing companies, such as Zipcar, Uber and RelayRides, service the area
