Welcome to Woodruff Place

This gracious historic community, located just one mile east of downtown Indianapolis, is recognized as Indianapolis's first planned residential suburb.
In a beautiful park-like setting, you will find fine examples of lovely
Victorian era homes, esplanades with fountains and statuary,
