Zionsville Indiana: Big on Small Town Charm!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Indianapolis Metro NE AB20100584

The Sanctuary on Main Street, Zionsville IndianaMy mother's proclamation that Zionsville Indiana is the "nicest little town I've seen" carries weight. Between traveling the world as a military wife and visiting her children, whose addresses span the country, she's got a lot to compare it to.

Personally, I think she's right. Founded in 1852, Zionsville is the perfect blend of upscale boutiques, art and antique shops, and quaint eateries lining a charming, brick-paved Main Street. Community parks, sports leagues, and other recreation venues also contribute to the town's idyllic small-town feel. Zionsville homes are some of the most spectacular in Central Indiana, and include everything from early 1900s bungalows in the historic downtown area to sprawling country estates and horse farms. Zionsville schools are ranked among the top in the state, which makes Zionsville real estate even more attractive!

The Sanctuary on Main Street is a former church featuring the works of Nancy Noel, an internationally-known artist and Zionsville resident! A tour of the gallery (the art and theZionsville Indiana Main Street setting are equally breathtaking) followed by lunch in the cafe is one of my favorite things to do in Zionsville. If it's an outdoor adventure you seek, consider visiting the Zion Nature Center where you can hike along scenic trails and enjoy exhibits of native Indiana wildlife.

Great spotlight on Zionsville, Indiana, Pat. Sounds like this town is a great place to work, live and play.

Hi Charles!  I think Zionsville does resemble lots of areas about which you have written.  People who do not like a lot of congestions and traffic often choose to relocate to Zionsville.

That's quite a recommendation from your mother, and I can see why she would say that.  Your description makes the reader want to hop in their car and head to Indiana!

Margaret~~  And I would welcome them with open arms.  One of the first comments relocating families make is how very friendly we are here in Indiana!!

Scott--You are correct--very old and they choose to restore their older buildings and homes rather than demolish and build new.  Your town of Cinncinnati has lots of the same about which to brag!!

What a delightful story of the town.  It sounds so charming like so many midwest cities that people do not even know about!

Melanie~~  You hit the nail on the head!  It is probably pretty typical, but also very special.  I guess each small town will have its own special, unique qualities!

Pat, I have a lot of family living in and also near Zionsville. I agree that it is a charming little town, but I sure as heck wouldn't move back to Indiana just to live there!  Sorry!!!

John---Glad you love where you are!  I have only been to Atlanta once---and it was in the spring.  It was just beautiful.  I moved to IN about 20 years ago and I love it here.  You would have a very hard time convincing me to leave!  Be sure to let your relatives know you know of a good realtor in the area!!
