West Indianapolis has been a family-friendly, blue-collar neighborhood since it was incorporated in 1897. Developed to house workers from the nearby Belt Line Railroad and Union Stockyards. WI’s working class tradition is alive and well today. Eli Lilly, Ingredion, IPL, Rolls Royce and Vertellus all call the neighborhood home.
