Lustron Homes in Warfleigh Neighborhood by Deborah Brown

When I took an IUPUI class on Indianapolis Architecture, it led to my awareness and discovery of Lustron homes in my near neighborhood of Broad Ripple Village in Indianapolis, Indiana. These uniquely constructed homes still in fair condition, represent a significantly forgotten time of local architectural history. Over the years I have one sketchbook which I exclusively draw scenes from the old original Broad Ripple, inside the boundaries told to me by my ninety-one year old mother. It has mostly outdoor scenes. Some of the drawings have been turned into large oil paintings and have been exhibited. Some of my plein-air painting has been of Lustron homes still standing in our area. The Warfleigh neighborhood between the White River on the north and the Central Canal on the south which flows through Broad Ripple, and between Meridian Street and College Avenue, features five Lustron post-war homes. These ranch style homes were invented by Carl Strandlund and are constructed entirely of steel. The exterior is enameled steel which never needs painting. They can be identified by their few manufactured color choices of Desert Grey, Dove Grey, Maize Yellow and Surf Blue. Today, low income families could have dreamed of home-ownership if only Lustron was still in business. Imagine how exciting it would have been to have a non-toxic home built entirely of steel including the “Thor” combination dishwasher/washing machine arriving by truck and with the opportunity of being able to put it together as though it were a huge pre-fabricated kit with over 3,300 parts. The house never had to be repainted inside or out and the roof was guaranteed for fifty years. Other features advertised were lightning-safe, decay-proof, and termite and rodent proof. These homes were manufactured by the Lustron Corporation in Columbus, Ohio, in an assembly-line production. They were meant to be the affordable solution for veteran’s families to reside in after WWII, beginning in 1947 until the 1951 foreclosure and bankruptcy proceedings. The government was backing the project to rapidly construct homes for WWII veterans with a multimillion-dollar loan from the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, and the use of the decommissioned warplane manufacturing plant, Curtis-Wright. Indianapolis had a major housing shortage and whole neighborhoods were built rapidly at this time. The crisis abounds all of America when approximately 10 million soldiers were discharged from the armed forces during 1945 and 1946. Some soldiers hurriedly wedded before going off to war and those who waited, got married as soon as they got back, and then there were those like my parents who got married while on duty stationed in Alaska during the war that neither planned or waited. Many soldiers were forced to live with parents while married or were in unsatisfactory accommodations while the media promised a higher expectation such as the “American Dream” which was unrealistic for the average person. Prior to this time “in the 1930’s only twenty percent of American families could afford low end single family housing.” (Suburban Steel) The population also increased dramatically creating what is now known as the “Baby Boom” due to military persons postponing marriage and family planning. Citizens were worried about an onslaught of another depression era. Housing had to be cheap and abundant. Pre-fabrication of entire homes or parts of homes seemed to be a solution with the federal housing program associated with defense mobilization. An example of this as a remedy can be observed in Indianapolis of the north side east of College Ave. It is a neighborhood which sprung into existence by means of conventional building with pre-fabricated parts such as the tract houses which were conducive to low costs and quickened time frames for completion. They were also more accepted with the population as regards style as opposed to Lustron Homes and lenders were more willing to offer mortgage loans. Persons buying Luston Homes had added costs of buying the lot and the shipping of transporting the house by tractor trailer. Veterans had to have saved up more money for a Lustron house as opposed to other building types. Levitt homes and today’s Beazer homes are examples. It is hard to say why Lustron homes failed as a business. Their too futuristic appearance was unusual by current trends and some home owners in the country were sued and had to modify facades and roof. No one wanted to outdo the conventional home building process. Even the railroads did not want to put lumber aside to transport steel. This would have upset the competition. The Lustron Corporation was proven to have innovative engineering skills, and a resourceful President and inventor, Carl Strandlund. He had already built porcelain enameled restaurants and Standard Oil gas stations, and other industrial buildings when he proposed his new project to the government for funding. Originally Strandlund was only trying to access the government’s hoarded steel supply for gas stations when they inspired him to turn his efforts into planning houses. His previous experience was necessary for enabling him to get the government involved in this aspect of the national housing crisis. This was a large peace-time endeavor which fell short when financiers became embarrassed by the not instant

painting by Deborah Brown

success. Strandlund pledged one hundred completed houses per day but only managed thirty. Other factors led to the demise. Finance companies were not prepared to give mortgages for houses which were not already standing on a site so, cheap homes ended up being unaffordable to the market it was focused on. Veterans had to have saved up cash for investment and pay shipping costs too without any help from a lending bank. Luston went into foreclosure during a time when they were still delivering several finished homes to buyers, and also had existing orders still. The government refused to finance any more loans. Although Strandlund was not quite on the mark as regards quota per day (he had a vision of 100 houses per day) perhaps the government stopped being supportive on account of bad publicity. A new business often has struggles but the how and why Lustron did not succeed are questions best answered by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, who took control of the company when ousting the managerial staff. Some of the problems were due to distribution of high volume sales. Suspicions of a conspiracy or controversial scandal began to emerge and “an investigation by a U.S. Senate banking subcommittee uncovered a corruption scandal within the Lustron Corporation” ( The Commercial Home Equipment business owner embezzled money while in the position also as a Lustron director. They rented non-existing tractors to Lustron and falsified billing. Those tractors that were billed were actually sold to someone else. “Lustron paid an additional $44,800 a month for phantom tractors” costing taxpayers $500,000. It was thought there should have been a government takeover, but many thought they should not have been involved in the first place. “Bailouts” came later in history.

BRVA February Land Use meeting By Alan Hague The Broad Ripple Village Association’s (BRVA) public meeting of the Land Use and Development committee was held on February 27 at Northminster Presbyterian Church. Approximately 15 in attendance. There were two items on the agenda (in bold below). 1. 6360 Guilford Avenue, Adam Hill regarding a variance of development standards for the consolidated zoning and subdivision ordinance to provide for a commercial office building within the clear sight triangle of the abutting streets, with a five-foot front yard setback from Main St. and a patio with railings having a two-foot front setbacks from Guilford Ave. and Main St. and deficient landscape yards (building not permitted within the clear sight triangle, 10-foot front yard setback, with sixfoot landscaped yards required). Petition #2017-DV2-049 Hearing before the Board of Zoning Appeals Tuesday, March 13, 2018 This proposal is to raze the house at 6360 Guilford Avenue (previously Three Sisters Restaurant, see photo below) and build a 1.5 story office building. This project has been before the committee once before. Since that visit, the project has been reduced to 1.5 stories from that original 4 story design. The committee voted unanimously to support this petition. 2. 927/929 Westfield Boulevard, John Pantzer to present an update on the proposed development design and other options for the property. This proposal has appeared before the committee several times. It includes the old Broad Ripple Steakhouse, La Chinita Poblana, and New Paradise Café buildings (see photo above). This was an update stating that the design project is in “exploration mode”. A number of possibilities are being considered, from razing the existing structures and building new, to razing some of the buildings, and replacing them with a combination of office and cooperative space shipping container structures, while remodeling what is left. Engineering studies are ongoing to determine what makes sense financially. The next public meeting of the Land Use and Development committee is planned for Tuesday, March 27 at Northminster Presbyterian Church starting at 6 pm.

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post #3. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and is Assistant Band Director at BRMHS. As a board member of the BRHS Alumni Association, he is an organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1940’s through the 1950’s held the first Sunday each June at Riviera Club. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? When is the BRMHS Homecoming Parade? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the seven Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/ recently opened business or long-time business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you. -Alan Hague

I just love this fundraiser and am always sad that I have to run off to my Red Key shift before it’s over. This event is the only reason that I own a beautiful robin’s egg blue Kate Spade purse. Hardworking volunteers have been gathering the goodies and putting together awesome baskets. You pop your raffle ticket in the cup of the basket you’d like to win. There will also be a 50/50 and other fun ways to donate. Bring your cash - it’s all for a great cause and you’ll never meet a nicer group of people. There will be delicious beer (it’s a brewery after all) and a limited food menu available. I hope to see you there!

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

Editor’s note: Since this one from CW included the original laminated poem, I decided to scan what he turned in for this issue to preserve a bit of history! -Alan

Historic Photo - HAIRCUT .15 BATH .15 That is what is displayed in the window of this house at 6207 Bellefontaine (pronounced bell fountain). In this circa 1900 photo, owners Charles H. and Louella Clare (Ringer) Pearce are standing in front with their daughter Blanche Pearce (Smith). The 6207 Bellefontaine address no longer exists. After the annexation of the Town of Broad Ripple by the City of Indianapolis in 1922, many of the streets were renamed and addresses renumbered. This was done to make the addresses conform, and to make the street names consistent with Indianapolis streets. Bellefontaine became Guilford, and 62nd Street became 63rd Street or Broad Ripple Avenue. The Pearce house would have been near today’s Brothers Bar and Grill. In the 1940’s Haag Drugs was at this corner. An inspirational side note: In 1941, the young girl in this photo, Blanche, took her cousin out of his sixth grade class at School 80 for a day trip to Purdue. He spent the day with her son going to engineering classes and therefore decided that he wanted to become an engineer. Before that day, however, he had never heard of engineering. He went on to be the Director Of Engineering at the Naval Avionics Facility Indianapolis (NAFI) for over twenty years, and later became the CEO. He was later awarded a doctorate from Purdue. He showed his diploma to Blanche, then 89 years old, and the twinkle in her eye showed that she knew it started with her. A single act of kindness can change a life.

BRVA Urges Meetings On Library Re-Location, Consideration Of Broad Ripple High School Building The BRVA has sent a formal letter to Indianapolis Public Library CEO Jackie Nytes asking her to reconsider the high school location for the relocation of the Glendale Branch Library and encouraged her to conduct public input sessions regarding the new location. The BRVA offered to assist publicizing such meetings through our social media channels. What Time Is It In Indiana? I’ll Drink To That Just when I thought our sometimes backward (but entertaining) state couldn’t top the never ending “liquor-sales-on-Sunday” debate (sales may start March 4), I now learn the Indiana Senate Homeland and Security Committee of the state legislature has passed a resolution to study which time zone Indiana should be in. We have been observing daylight time since 2005 and all but 12 counties are in the eastern time zone. Is it me or do we just like to debate things ad nauseum in the Hoosier State? If we were on Central time, it would be dark at 4:20 p.m. in the winter (but lighter earlier). (Yes I

And yes we were on Central time until 1965 (albeit with no daylight time except in “Fast Time” counties down south.) As they say when the plane lands, “We have just landed in Indianapolis. Please set your clocks back 20 years.” Anyone for debating cold beer sales in the grocery store? 60 Free TV Channels in the Ripple I just got a new antenna for my over-the-air broadcast TV.

Everything you always wanted to know about the canal... By Alan Hague

Part Nineteen

The Downtown Canal (part 4) (last of series) The Broad Ripple Gazette presented (in various issues from Volume 12 #18 through Volume 13 #9) the history and workings of the Indiana Central Canal as it exists today, from the canal’s creation at the dam on the White River in Broad Ripple, down to the Citizens White River Treatment Plant near the Fall Creek and 16th Street. This article is the fourth part that covers the portion of the canal that was past the water treatment plant. It currently runs from 11th Street, through downtown and White River State Park, “spilling over” into the White River near the southwest corner of the NCAA Hall of Champions. From part 3 to start this installment:

but added to the canal over the years from residents. There is a large population near the warm water inlet under the Ohio Street bridge. Bass have also been seen in the canal. The fish are safe because the Canal Walk water is not treated with chlorine or other hazardous chemicals. The water is tinted blue to slow the growth of algae. It is also under the watch of an aquatic control company. The DMD has a crew that tends to the Canal nearly every day, “mowing, mulching, watering plants, taking out dead plants,” and repairing damage from vandalism. The maintenance costs around $400,000 per year. Around 2007 the Canal Walk was drained and cleaned at a cost of about $500,000. Each year the canal becomes several colors, coinciding with a celebration or a proclamation ceremony. It has been green, red, yellow, and of course, Colts blue.

Phase three took the canal north past Michigan Street. The pedestrian bridge was at Vermont Street was built. A basin wide enough to turn a watercraft around was constructed between the pedestrian bridge and New York Street.

Phase four of the project was completed in 2001. It included the three blocks from St. Clair Street north to 11th Street. This phase cost $10,000,000. The portion of the canal that runs from the West Street bridge to the south west to the White River was built by the State of Indiana, not the City of Indianapolis. The two canal projects connect at West Street. The state completed the section that runs where the original canal bed was on the south side of Military Park and turned south to about Washington Street, then west again to the White River. This part of the canal is in White River State Park and is maintained as part of the park. The final, western-most section becomes shallow and grows narrower and narrower as it approaches a waterfall back to the White River (see left). Large schools of goldfish can At the far west end of the canal the width narrows as be seen in the canal. The fish water spills into the White River. were not stocked by the City,

Clue: A equals V

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Let’s start with the easy puzzle. We will try to put a 6 in the center section that contains 1-2-5-7. The 6 in the left section of the middle row eliminates the space between the 7-2. The 6 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the three spaces in the row between the 1-5 and the 7-2. The only place left is between the 1-5. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Perk Up Cafe/Brotgarten, 6536 Cornell Avenue [C5 on map], held its annual Valentines Day dinner on the 14th. But this year, owners Alice and Jeanette didn’t cook the usual multi course German influenced meal. Instead, Crush & Brew Catering offered up a “Hungry Hearts Wine Tasting and Food Pairing” experience. The Brotgarten gals did share their tender, flaky, sharp cheddar cheese rolls as the first plate along with a lip smacking wine cocktail made from the bitter, Aperol, and Avissi Prosecco. Avissi is produced by the Trinchero family which owns vineyards in Italy and the US and also dozens of wine labels and properties around the world. Avissi is a proprietary name–( i.e. they made it up!) as they believe that is the sound the sparkling wine ( made from 100% prosecco grapesNOT made up) makes when it hits the glass. It IS fizzy and crisp and a terrific mixer with the bitter orange aperol. Sweet and Spicy Barbecue Meatballs served with the smooth earthy Michel Chapoutier Cotes Du Roussillon Village got guests talking. The simple yet complex flavors of the sauce were echoed in the versatile dry red wine. Chicken and Pork Spring Rolls came with two wines giving guests the chance to TRULY see and taste how a wine affects the taste of a food. The off dry Leonard Kreusch Riesling tempered the subtle Asian spice in the meat. The Mustache Vineyards Pinot Noir highlighted the elegance of the dish. The tart cherry, spicy cedar notes of the Mustache were a hit. The wine is made in Lodi, California but the grapes are from Sonoma County. Mustache also donates a percentage of wine sales to prostate cancer research. Santa Julia Tardio Late Harvest Torrontes finished out the evening paired with tiramisu and red velvet cupcakes. This was the quirkiest combination of the night once again proving that the most important element in any pairing is enjoying a wine that YOU like.

The Life of The Party Adventures in Entertaining

by Elizabeth Morse



Irish Eats for St. Patrick’s Day Even if you can’t claim Irish heritage, St. Patrick’s Day is so much fun to celebrate and certainly here in Broad Ripple. If you aren’t interested in joining the tomfoolery at the bars that evening, why not celebrate with friends at home? Pull out your greenest table cloth and your shamrock t-shirt and give these recipes a shot. You may decide they’re worthy of repeating throughout the year.

Corned Beef & Cabbage

Buy yourself a corned beef brisket at the grocery. It will come with a little packet of seasoning AND instructions. Basically, you’re going to pull out your slow cooker the morning that you plan to entertain. Drop the beef in and sprinkle with the mixture of seasonings. Cover with water and turn set it on high. I let mine go all day. Your house will smell amazing and the beef will be tender and perfect that evening. Close to serving time, I line a sheet pan with foil and fill it with small red potatoes, carrots cut into large pieces and a large head of cabbage (cored and with outer leaves removed). The key here is to make your potatoes, carrots and green cabbage chunks roughly the same size. You can certainly prepare this in the morning and stick it in the fridge until ready to roast. 30 - 45 minutes before you are ready to eat, fire up your oven. Take a ½ cup of the cooking liquid from your beef and drizzle over the veggies. Salt and pepper to taste, then gently toss them to coat. Pop them in a 400-degree oven on the lowest rack for 25 minutes. Check one of your potatoes for doneness and remove the pan or cook 5-10 minutes more if desired. Pile your veggies on a large serving platter and place the corned beef on top. I like to serve this meal with traditional Irish soda bread. In full disclosure, I’ve never made it. It’s always available in bakeries around mid-March and I just pick some up. I warm it up in the oven and serve it with plenty of butter. In the spirit of the day, offer Guinness Stout and O’Douls Non-Alcoholic beers to guests.

In 1942, a young Irish chef named Joe Sheridan invented the popular dessert drink, IRISH COFFEE. Here is his original recipe with my interpretation of the preparation: Cream: Coffee: Sugar: Whiskey:

Rich as an Irish Brogue Strong as a Friendly Hand Sweet as the tongue of a Rogue Smooth as the Wit of the Land

Dessert: Irish Coffee

Warm a wine goblet with very hot water. Wait two minutes then pour out the water and add a tablespoon of brown sugar and a shot of Irish Whiskey (Jameson or Tillamore Dew). Fill the glass 2/3 with freshly brewed coffee and stir to dissolve the sugar. Top your coffee with loosely-whipped cream (heavy cream that hasn’t been whipped so long that it is super stiff and forms peaks). You will gently pour the cream over the back of a spoon into the coffee. Your goal is to make the coffee resemble a glass of frothy Guinness. Pass everyone a drink and be sure to raise your glasses with a traditional Irish toast. This one’s my favorite: “May the luck of the Irish Lead to happiest heights And the highway you travel Be lined with green lights. Wherever you go and whatever you do, May the luck of the Irish be there with you.”

Random Ripplings The annual Sap to Syrup event was held on February 24th at Holliday Park. There were 80 attendees (sold out!) learning about the maple syrup process and enjoying maple sundaes.

Sheila yoked up a participant so he could experience an early method of transporting the sap from the trees to the kettle for reduction.
