Forbes: America’s Prettiest Neighborhoods

5 of 12

North Meridian Street, Indianapolis, Indiana

The longtime home of Indianapolis’ well-to-do, North Meridian Street thrives today as a popular historic district, offering a wide variety of stately homes to view – from your car. North Meridian’s palatial homes remain private, and offer a glimpse at what a beautiful old neighborhood can be when it is well-preserved. A state preservation act was passed in 1971, limiting commercial development and designed to keep the neighborhood looking much the way it has for most of the 20th Century. “Each mansion seems larger than the next, and the landscaping at each is stunning,” says Williams. “The homes mostly were built between World War I and World War II, and you can’t help but gaze at them and wonder what it would be like to live there.”
