Do you like looking through other people’s stuff? Its OK, you can be honest. Well, if you are a history hound, an interior design devotee, an architecture admirer or just one of the aforementioned snoopers than have we got an outing for you! This Saturday, on the north-side of Indianapolis, Broad Ripple Village will be your homes away from home, literally. Come join in the fun as the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) presents the 5th annual Broad Ripple Historic Home Tour
The Broad Ripple Historic Home Tour is just as it sounds. This Saturday, September 26, ten of this Indianapolis cultural district‘s residents will open their homes up to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This is not meant for Circle City residents to just come and see how these Hoosiers live. Rather, it is a way for those in Indy to learn about the storied history of one Indiana‘s most intriguing areas.
While most know Broad Ripple as an Indianapolis nightlife mecca, BR village is much more than that. For instance did you know that the land now occupied by Broad Ripple was “bought” from the Miami Indian tribe? Or that in the early 20th century this quint little town was punctured mercilessly when oil was found beneath the ground? Didn’t think so. These are the types of informational nuggets you will gather while a part of the Broad Ripple Historic Home Tour.
While this is only the fifth year the Broad Ripple Historic Home Tour has taken place, 40 houses have already taken part in sharing their inner most…innards. This year’s ten homes are all new and ready the viewing public. After you have had your fill of other people’s stuff stay in Broad Ripple for some of the best shopping in Indianapolis you can find.
