This is the last post in a series featuring College Avenue nodes in the Meridian Kessler neighborhood. Again, thanks to Mary Owens from the MKNA for all of the helpful information.Â Â Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 can be read here.
Proof of the former Kroger at the entrance of the building:
The other large building is a 3-story former Masonic Lodge.Â It is now home to the Church of Christ as well as Taste of Philly pretzels.
The home of the College Avenue Library.Â A nice-looking structure that is about a decade-old.
Originally a bank building (the safe deposit box still stands), this was until recently an outpost of the Indianapolis Police Department.Â I’m not sure what is going on here any more, but it does still seem to be use by the Police Department in some capacity.Â This was also the corner that housed the Uptown movie theater.
I did not take a photo of the Fire Department building at the southwest corner.Â There’s also a large parking lot at the corner which should be ripe for potential development.
