Ever noticed the cool historic signage around Irvington? There’s the Victoria, the Jeffers, the Muriel and of course others you would instantly recognize like the Irving! Irvington has these and a number of other inscribed and architecturally integrated signage along East Washington St.  According to the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission (IHPC), “a sign is considered historic if it is at least 50 years old and retains significant original integrity to provide a record of the building’s original use and/or the area’s history.”  We found an interesting document that includes the remaining historic Irvington signage in the area along with an inventory of the sign locations.  The document includes additional tidbits on the history of Irvington and can be found here
