Historic Meridian Park Neighborhood [2] is situated north of downtown Indianapolis, and located within the larger Mapleton Fall Creek Neighborhood.[3] While the neighborhood is fairly small, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The neighborhood began to be developed around the turn of the 20th century. It not only has a significant collection of American Craftsman or Arts & Crafts Style homes, but is also notable as one of Indianapolis's first suburbs.
