 Neighborhood of the Month

Welcome to Indianapolis' Neighborhood of the Month page! This initiative from Mayor Joe Hogsett will feature one Indianapolis neighborhood every month and will highlight the great recreational and cultural offerings of each neighborhood. 

Mayor Hogsett has selected Cottage Home as the Neighborhood of the Month for October, 2018!

Located on the near east side of Indianapolis next to Arsenal Technical High School, this historic neighborhood continues to honor its past and embrace its future. The neighborhood takes its name from the style of houses built between 1870 and 1900. Early residents built modest frame cottage homes in a variety of styles, including shotgun and Queen Anne vernacular. Today, this community is recognized as a conservation district by the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission and parts of the community have been listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
“Indianapolis is a place where the past and present of a neighborhood can come together in harmony,” Mayor Hogsett said. “Cottage Home continues to be a cornerstone of our community and I am honored to recognize this area as our Neighborhood of the Month”
This month will mark Cottage Home’s 35th annual neighborhood block party. This Halloween-themed event is to honor its distinctiveness within the city and the growing appreciation for the area. City-County Councillor and Vice President of the City-County Council Zach Adamson represents this neighborhood in District 17 and appreciates the residents and history of the neighborhood.  
“Cottage Home has been an iconic neighborhood in Indianapolis for decades” said Vice President Adamson, “This recognition highlights its historic purpose within the city and I’m proud to represent this amazing community.”


Residents and visitors are encouraged to use the hashtag #IndyNoM when posting on social media about Cottage Home during the month of October.
