    There are many little places on the fringes of Indianapolis/MC that have some history; this area is a cool find!

    If you’re looking for places in MARION county, consider visiting ACTON. It’s in the southeast corner of Franklin township. It’s very odd to walk the streets and realize you are still in INDIANAPOLIS.
