dc.description.abstract This creative project investigates the evolution and significance of historic landscape features in Irvington, Marion County, Indiana, and provides recommendations for their preservation. Irvington was developed in 1870 as an early suburb of Indianapolis in the Romantic Landscape Style. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated as a local historic district by the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission. This creative project documents Irvington’s relationship with the romantic suburb of Glendale, Ohio, and how it was influenced by other suburban landscape planning ideas during the nineteenth century. This creative project is organized using the methods of a cultural landscape report (CLR) which documents Irvington’s inception, design, evolution and existing conditions. The CLR analyzes and evaluates the characteristics, boundaries and integrity of the historic landscape. The CLR provides treatment recommendations based on the findings to preserve and enhance Irvington’s historic landscape features. en_US
