Class 900: Indianapolis
A BLOG ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE CIRCLE CITY
My name is Ed and I am an attorney living in the Butler Tarkington neighborhood of Indianapolis. Indy was founded in 1821 and became the capitol of Indiana in 1825. The almost 200 years since has been full of notable historical milestones, and less celebrated, but still interesting tidbits.
My goal for this blog is to explore a wide and diverse range of topics and events, big and small, which occurred in Indianapolis, as well as other events around Central Indiana in order to provide a window into the almost 200 years of history for the city I call home.
Some of these postings will be re-prints from articles that I write for our neighborhood newsletter. These will tend to focus heavily on the history of Butler Tarkington, and the Midtown areas of Indianapolis (just in case you notice this trend in the posts). Feel free to shoot me a e-mail if you have an idea for a topic to research or any questions!
Wondering about the name of the blog? it is a reference to the Dewey Decimal System used in libraries across the country to categorize their collections. Class 900 is the general classification for history related titles.
