Last week’s Then and Now column about the Hammond Block Building at 301 Massachusetts led me to wonder about its builder, Rezin R. Hammond. Although Hammond sold the flatiron building to a physician within a year or two after constructing it in 1874, his name remains associated with the structure nearly 140 years later. But his name is otherwise unknown to me and he’s not remembered as an early promiment citizen of Indianapolis. Luckily, his descendants have kept his memory alive via a web page created by Roger Kemps (with contributions from William Worth Kemps, Jr. and William Wayne McCall).
