Near West community

The Near West community is located along the banks of the White River and is just minutes from the center of downtown Indianapolis. It is home to Haughville, Hawthorne, Stringtown, and We Care neighborhoods.

These neighborhoods are diverse and historically distinct. With a long history of welcoming immigrants and diversity, Near West was the city’s first suburb.
