"Touch and tame us with thy grace, Placid calm of Woodruff Place" from June at Woodruff by James Whitcomb Riley

Welcome to Woodruff Place

This gracious historic community, located just one mile east of downtown Indianapolis, is recognized as Indianapolis's first planned residential suburb.
In a beautiful park-like setting, you will find fine examples of lovely
Victorian era homes, esplanades with fountains and statuary,
and an ambiance that is unlike any other. 
Woodruff Place was included in the
National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

To those of us who live here it is home.
