Fletcher Place is historically significant because its residents made many contributions to the early development of architecture, religion, commerce, education, and social life in the city of Indianapolis. The structures they built, which remain to this day, are evidence of this contribution.
Fletcher Place and Holy Rosary-Danish Church neighborhood flow one into the next on Downtown's near south side. Both are growing communities while staying true to their historical past. Residents have regular neighborhood meetings and numerous social events including the Italian Street Festival. Many Holy Rosary residents are descendants of Italian families that have lived in the neighborhood for generations. Friends gather at the local Edna Balz Lacy Park for picnics, bocce ball and sand volleyball.
Virginia Avenue links these neighborhoods to the Mile Square and Fountain Square, home to an eclectic art and live music scene. The borders of Fletcher Place are Louisiana Street to the North, I-65 to the South, East Street to the West and I-70/I-65 to the East. The streets west of South College Avenue run north-south and east-west, while most streets east of South College Avenue are oriented to the diagonal axis of Virginia Avenue.
