About this collection

Bates Hendricks house

 Enter Collection

The Bates-Hendricks neighborhood is located on the near south side of Indianapolis. In 1821, the first sanctioned land sale took place in Indianapolis and a few outer lots were sold, including one that would eventually become the Bates-Hendricks House estate. The historic Bates-Hendricks House, named after former owners Hervey Bates, a prominent banker, and Thomas A. Hendricks, an Indiana Governor and United States Vice President, is on the National Register of Historic Landmarks and is the namesake of the neighborhood.

 

In 2009, the neighborhood won INRC's Collaborative Spirit Award for the New Jersey Street Project and the Inspiring Places Award for its Abandoned Housing Project. The neighborhood also received the national Keep America Beautiful Award, the East Street Alternatives award, and the New Street IMAGINE Grant. In 2010, the neighborhood placed third in its category nationally for the Neighborhoods USA Best Neighborhood in the Nation Award. Bates-Hendricks has twice been awarded Keep Indianapolis Beautiful's IPL Project GreenSpace grant for Baumann (2013) and Ringgold Parks (2016). Additionally, Bates-Hendricks residents Jay Allen and Lydia Brasher won SEND's Helen Fehr Award for Community Service in 2009 and 2016 respectively. Most recently, Bates-Hendricks was named Neighborhood of the Month by Major Joe Hogsett.
