West Newton, Moorsville, and Monrovia

Last night my wife and I ate dinner at Zydeco’s in Mooresville. The food was tasty. Here are some shots of the nearby region.

First, West Newton, an enclave in Indianapolis:


Next, Mooresville.


I liked that a few of the buildings had the first and last names on them:



Finally, the wife’s hometown, Monrovia. In the race between the two of us for the smallest hometown, her Monrovia wins against my Roanoke, 628 to 1,495:




They’re having a festival the weekend of September 12:
Nice new sidewalk infrastructure here at the corner next to this beautiful house:

    I was once told that West Newton was a Quaker settlement, but couldn't say for sure…

    Yup. There's a Friends Cemetery in town, and a Friends church a mile north of town. Nearby in southern Hendricks County is Friendswood Road (and golf course). Mooresville has a Friends church, so there was quite a population of Quakers in this region.

    Kevin, my grandfather was from Roanoke. I grew up farther north, up past Fort Wayne, but spent lots of time in Roanoke. :)

    That's cool. My parents moved when I was 13 and I went to High School outside of Fort Wayne, so I claim both places (and sometimes even Huntington) as my hometown.

    I've got Zydeco's on my short list of places to try. I'll stick to dessert at Grey's though. Their banana cream pie is a thing of beauty.
