In the 1900 block of Herron-Morton Place:
This was once home to a man who served as Corporation Council for the City of Indianapolis (from 1918-1922), Samuel Ashby and his family. They were next door neighbors to the William H. Block family; you can see part of the porte cochere of the Block mansion on the left in this photo.
The home was part of the original Morton Place (19th – 22nd, Delaware to west side of Central) and now part of Herron-Morton Place (16th to 22nd, Pennsylvania to the west side of Central). This single-family home was carved into apartments in the 1920’s, as so many of the large Victorians were.
