It was established as part of the trend toward suburban development not only in Indianapolis, but also across the nation. Homecroft was not developed around any industrial site or particular attraction yet it has gained National Register listing because of its association with events' that have made a significant contribution to the broad patterns of our history [located about four and one-half miles south of downtown beside Madison Avenue (the south leg of the Michigan Road of settlement times).].
