Rosner Building - 1552 Main Street

Speedway, Indiana 46224, United States

Created By: Historic Urban Neighborhoods of Indianapolis


From 16th to 15th Street along Main Street, all commercial development and activity occurred until the early 1930’s.

The Rosner Building was built in 1915 by Joseph Rosner and included two upstairs apartments. The south side was a grocery store and the north side was a druggist which Rosner's two sons operated. One apartment was used by the 1st doctor to practice in Speedway, Dr. Ernest McDonald. The other apartment was leased for a Freight Agent's office of P& E Railroad.

In the late 1980's it became a camera & photo store. By the early 1990's, Speedway Town Press occupied the building until 2009, when the paper moved to the Bland-Zink building.

Now building is owned and occupied by the Wilcox Environmental Engineering Company.
