This home is a good illustration of some of the nicer, upper-class homes built in the late 1800’s. Built in 1896 by the Ittenbach family (John G. and Mary). John was one of the sons of Gertrude Ittenbach, owner of the G. Ittenbach Stone Company (constructed some of the limestone churches downtown). One prominent feature is the limestone porch (uncommon for the area). The urns were taken by a former owner of the house (1940s-1970s) when he left for the east side of Indianapolis. A later owner of the house (1996-2010) met with the earlier owner and bought the urns back. Now they are secured to the porch railing! Historic bollards in the tree lawn (originally used for hitching horses). These are some of the few remaining bollards of this type in Herron-Morton Place.
