Chatham Arch – Onyx + East

Chatham-Arch is located just east of Downtown Indianapolis. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, dating back to the mid 19 th century. Its unusual street pattern dates back to pre-Civil War times. The neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. There is an interesting variety of architectural inspiration within the area, including Italianate, Gothic Revival, and Queen Anne style architecture. There is also a curious combination of housing types in the neighborhood. Here, workers’ cottages, middle class residences, rental duplexes, apartment buildings and flats, commercial buildings with second floor sleeping rooms, and a few large homes of the wealthy all existed at the turn of the century.

Massachusetts Avenue is the primary commercial district within the Chatham-Arch neighborhood. Mass Ave. is home to several post-Civil War and early 20 th century commercial buildings. The Real Silk Hosiery Mills complex, what used to be one of the country’s main silk hosiery factories, operated on Mass Ave. Now, Mass Ave. is one of Indianapolis’ six cultural districts lined with boutiques, theaters, restaurants and art galleries.
