From your editor: I have received several requests for a reprint of the 1968 publication “A History of Broad Ripple” by The Junior Historical Society and The Riparian Newspaper, both of Broad Ripple High School. We haven’t published this information since 2004 and many new residents are now in Broad Ripple and have never read it. Where we come from is important. It has some errors. I will try to correct them as they appear. I will attempt to reprint the entire booklet. I will include each section as space permits. -AH

Canal villages thrive Broad Ripple and Wellington, which started out as small river communities, were soon in the process of becoming bustling and growing Indiana towns. In the early 1880’s, the village of Wellington was a thriving community. In this area to the south of the Broad Ripple-Indianapolis Canal were Wray’s Dry Goods Store, Florander’s Blacksmith Shop, the United States Post Office, the Odd Fellows Lodge Hall, the Methodist Church, and Washington Township Grade School Number 14. The village of Broad Ripple on the north side of the canal was at its lowest ebb at this time, however. Two-thirds of this area had been turned back to farmland and only about 35 people lived there. The only remaining business was the KoontzBurke grist mill. Broad Ripple, however, was soon to receive some of Wellington’s good fortune for in 1884 the two villages were incorporated as one town under the name of Broad Ripple. Many additions were made to the prosperous new community. A livery stable owned by Isaac White was built near the corner of Broad Ripple Avenue [NOTE: this was about where Condado Tacos is today] and Marion Road, now known as Compton Street. The town hall was erected at the corner of Westfield Boulevard and Bellefontaine, now Guilford Avenue. This building was also used as a jail, a polling place, and the base of operations for the volunteer fire department. In the early days, the fire engine was a hand-pushed wagon with a hand pump. When Broad Ripple became a part of Indianapolis, the volunteer fire department changed to Indianapolis Fire Station No. 32. This station was enlarged and improved in 1922.

There were about 100 in attendance at the Spring public Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) meeting held April 16th at the Indianapolis Art Center. The food and drink was provided by Broad Ripple Brewpub and Average Joe’s. Throughout the evening, door prizes were given out courtesy of BurgerFuel, Greek’s Pizzeria, Dr. Eve Earley chiropractor, and the BRVA. BRVA president Josh John opened the meeting and discussed the 50th anniversary of the BRVA, the Bark Park and Family Center redevelopment at BR Park, the status of BRHS, Riverwalk, membership changes, and CreateIndy grants. On the Riverwalk, the proposed project to connect Broad Ripple Park with the Monon Trail, Josh announced that the BRVA received at $750,000 matching grant from the city. The BRVA will be working to raise the full $750,000 to be able to double it with the grant. Next Colleen Fanning, BRVA executive director and district 2 City-County councillor, introduced the group from Tomato Fish Marketing to detail the design of the new BRVA Cultural District logos and associated BRVA graphics. Colleen explained that the previous logo became synonymous with the nightlife in Broad Ripple. The BRVA received a $25,000 grant from CreateIndy and, through a selection process, picked Tomato Fish Marketing to rebrand Broad Ripple. The logo, shown here, has several versions, including blue/white and multi-color. There are also seven sub-logos for the seven events the BRVA offers. Those are Farmer’s Market, Art Walk, Duck Race, Carnival, Ripple Effect 5K, Home Tour, and Lights Up. Next on the agenda was Purdue Polytechnic High School (PPHS). Scott Bess, Head of Schools for PPHS, detailed the reasons PPHS exists and the techniques used for student achievement. PPHS will open this fall at 1430 Broad Ripple Avenue [H10 on map], across the street to the east of Flanner Buchanan Mortuary. This was previously CICF. For more information: Next was Dan Parker, Director of the Department of Public Works (DPW), to talk about street resurfacing and chuckholes. Dan explained that while Indianapolis has 30% of the roadways in the state, DPW only receives only 10% of the state’s road budget. DPW is also responsible for 538 bridges in Marion County. Dan said that street sweeping has been brought back under city control. DPW will start sweeping Broad Ripple four times a week. Colleen announced that in 2020 the entirety of Keystone Avenue will be resurfaced. The final portion of the meeting was Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Deputy Chief Chris Bailey talking about the downturn of crime in general in Indianapolis. He also mentioned returning to smaller beats so the IMPD officers can know better (and be known better) in the area. Currently North District, which includes Broad Ripple, is the size of Fort Wayne, but with one half the number of the officers on patrol. The next public BRVA meeting is scheduled for November 12.

Letters to the Editor Note to our readers: Letters to the Editor are the opinions of our readers and not necessarily those of this paper.

I am curious why your paper does not ever state the real issues regarding a proposed Zoning case. In this particular case you fail to mention that the Metazoa People are asking for a Variance of the required 22+ parking space required for such a development to be changed to Zero. - so that basically all of the Customers that go to this location will be forced to park in Neighboring Property Owners parking spaces. This is unacceptable!!! Even though you claim to not be a Journalist your prosper by pumping out one-sided cr@# paper. I am calling you out on this. Also we the neighbors have not even yet receives the required notification of the Proposed Change. Just Saying......We will be there!! Robert Robb

[NOTE: The When was a downtown clothing store at 26-40 N. Pennsylvania Street. The misunderstood sign atop the Barthel Hotel was simply an advertising billboard.] This completes Chapter 7 of the booklet. Chapter 8 will appear in a future issue.

Local tech entrepreneurs purchase the Vogue Theater

The Vogue, a Broad Ripple nightclub and one of the most popular and storied music venues in the Midwest, announced today it is changing ownership. Steve Ross, who purchased the Vogue in 1986, sold the Vogue to a group of Indianapolis tech entrepreneurs. The group of new owners includes Eric Tobias, co-founder and partner at High Alpha, Scott Kraege, co-founder and former CEO of MOBI; and Andrew Davis, former CFO of MOBI. The three new owners will stay in their current roles and plan to keep the current Vogue staff to manage the day-to-day operations of the venue. The Vogue opened as a movie theater on June 18, 1938, and was one of the premier movie houses in the Midwest. On December 31, 1977, The Vogue was transformed and reopened as a nightclub. Many bands and artists have performed at the venue over the past 40 years, including: Warren Zevon, Bo Diddley, Willie Nelson, The Ramones, John Hiatt, Blondie, Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, The White Stripes, The Flaming Lips, Cheap Trick, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Byrne, Rusted Root, Bob Weir & Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa, Govt Mule, Keb’ Mo’, John Mayer, Kings of Leon, Ice Cube, The Dave Matthews Band and many more. “I wanted to leave the Vogue with people who care for the venue and its legacy the way I did,” said Steve Ross, who has operated the venue for the past three decades. “Scott, Eric and Andrew are the perfect group to take the reins and bring their unique vision, tech and entrepreneurial backgrounds and passion for Indianapolis to the Vogue.” “Our partnership has founded and led a number of businesses over the last two decades in Indianapolis. We strongly believe creative communities attract top talent, and the arts play a major part in decisions on where to live,” said Kraege. The new owners already have plans to reinvigorate The Vogue by improving the experience for artists and patrons. Facilities, sound and music fan engagement will be enhanced to drive unique acts and events beyond music. They will be announcing specific future plans in the coming months.“Coupled with all of our passion for music, we saw this as an incredible opportunity to take this historic venue and continue to raise the bar.” said Tobias, “We believe investments in our local community, Broad Ripple and the arts will continue the Vogue’s legacy on the city.” To learn more about the Vogue, see upcoming shows, or purchase tickets, visit

The background of The Gazette:

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 Girstle Hague 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 great grandparents John E. Hague and Nora Hague lived at 6148 N. College Avenue and 6170 Guilford Avenue. My great grandparents John Dawson and Nora Ringer Dawson lived at 6122 Carrollton Avenue. My 2nd great grandaunt and uncle, Sarah Coil Thompson and Hamlin Thompson, lived at 6116 Guilford Avenue. 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 was Assistant Band Director at BRHS, now band director at Crispus Attucks High School. 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? 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 longtime 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.

Edie Carey was one of my favorite musicians to play at CATH coffeehouse. I miss the days of singer/songwriters playing at the coffeehouse and spending the night at my house. Of course many things have changed - in a great way since those days. Last week I celebrated my 14th anniversary of working at the amazing nonprofit agency, Second Helpings. Edie is married and has two beautiful children. Luckily for us she is still writing songs and touring. Her songs are pop-folk beautiful and bursting with stories of photo by Tim Carey love and life. If you’ve never been to a house concert it is a lovely way to hear music. It’s an intimate setting, everyone is there to listen. Often the musicians will share about their songwriting process and story behind the song. All of the money goes directly to the musician. Like most house concerts this one will have a little social time before the show starts. Feel free to bring something to the pitch in. Email to RSVP and she’ll share the address with you then. The show is about 25 minutes from Broad Ripple, not far from Fort Harrison State Park.

-Nora Not-for-profit director by day, music writer by night, Nora Spitznogle reviews music that happened and previews music and events around Broad Ripple Village. Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.

AC Radio’s new home at 5207 N. College Avenue, across the street to the east from the first shop. Next door to the south is the Texaco service station (now Habig).

ACR Appliances - the story of a corner: part three By Alan Hague Background: In 2008 through 2019 I conducted a series of interviews with Don Albershardt. Don ran ACR Appliances at 5215 College Avenue from the 1960s into the 1990s His dad, Milton, started with a small radio shop on 52nd Street around 1927/28. I will try to tell the story of this store and also of the surrounding businesses at that corner in the coming installments. It is an interesting story.

In the last installment it is 1930. Milton Albershardt gets married to Frances and they live above the AC Radio shop that Milton owns at 652 E. 52nd Street (currently The Artistry Group, and PRINtEXT before that). Just a few years before that, the Texaco station and the Clark building are built on the NE corner of 52nd and College. Also, of historic note, the building on the SW corner is built and Piggly Wiggly Grocery opens there, where the Red Key Tavern is today.

In 1932, Milton and Frances celebrate the birth of their son Don (the source of the stories in this series of articles). A year later Milton and Frances travel to Cleveland, Ohio, to complete the purchase of the Clark Building. This c. 1927 building (now home to Edward Jones), had been Edward Clark Dry Goods. The Albershardts buy it for $5000 and move the radio shop across the street into the larger space. Upstairs at 5207 were the offices of Dr. Charles Keever and dentist Paul Oldham. Don recalls the heating plant for the building, “See these stripes in the concrete [in the photo above]? That’s hollow. There’s a basement, a boiler and a huge 2000 gallon oil tank. I remember as a little kid going down there looking at those monsters. The boiler... I thought it was like a steam a locomotive down there. It was huge. It had the big round door in the front that opened and tubes in there. That was all underneath that sidewalk. That was designed so they could take those slabs up if they ever had to replace it and one day we did!” By 1934 the AC Radio Electric Shop opens at 5207 N. College Avenue. Across College, on the corner, is now Brady’s Drug Store, photo courtesy of Don Albershardt which becomes Huff’s Cut Rate Drugs around 1935. Dr Keever and Paul Oldham, A G.E. Monitor Top refrigerator, and vacuums, on display at the AC Radio shop.

DDS., relocated across the street at 5210 College and Milton converts the second floor of the AC Radio building into apartments. Milton, Frances, and Don occupy the two front ones on the College side. The larger shop allows for the sale of other electric items, like washing machines and refrigerators. Vacuums and mixers can also be seen in the store window in the 1934 photo above. Don shared a story about those early refrigerators, “This was known as the monitor top...GE. Those refrigerators are prior to the discovery of freon. They used sulfur dioxide as a refrigerant. Refrigeration men had to wear gas masks. If there was a leak, It’d run you out of the house. It was a poisonous gas, but it was a good refrigerant. The downside was if it ever sprung a leak ...and I was with my dad one time when one was being carried out of a house. They all wore gas masks, and me, I go in there thinking, Oh, I’m the owner’s son... well, I got trapped and hanging out a window just to get my breath. At any rate, I’m very familiar with what it smells like!” Milton started a new service at AC Radio - buying on time. Customers could come to the store weekly to make payments. If the customer wasn’t able to get to the store, Milton would send an employee to the customer’s workplace on payday to collect the payment. Don Albershardt recalls, “It was a big deal, weekly payments, people didn’t have $59.95, they didn’t have $99, [for a new appliance]. The deal was, ok, where do you work? What day do you get paid? Can you afford $2.30 a week? We will be here, on Friday, or your payday, to collect that money.” This service both improved sales and generated interest income for the shop. It also produced someone who will become important to this story, employee Kenneth An early promotional item (1936) from AC Radio. A free movie ticket to Zaring’s Poisel. Kenny was hired to work in Egyptian Theatre located at 27th and Central. collections at the West Washington store (the second AC Radio location). Milton’s original notes show Kenny was making $30 a week. We will hear more about him soon. In 1936, AC Radio opens a third store. It is at 36 Virginia Avenue, inside the Pembroke Arcade. Don recalls his childhood barber at 648 E. 52nd Street, “George Gladdis was the barber. Cut my hair many a time...when I had hair...and then, Paul Taylor. Paul cut hair for our kids, too.” In 1937, the Red Key Tavern opens, after a series of restaurants were at the 5170 address. This same year the Piggly Wiggly Store, which moved in 1932 half a block north on College to 5212, becomes Bernice’s Restaurant.

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II


Random Ripplings

The clearance sales are over and the Glendale Macy’s is gone. The store dated back to 1958 when Glendale Mall was built and L.S. Ayres & Co. was one of two anchor stores. The other was Wm. H. Block, where Target, Staples and the Library are today.

I have been watching the re-release of the PBS series “Eyes On The Prize”. The one on Mississippi featured Fannie Lou Hamer. She is one of my favorite civil rights activists; she was the wife of a sharecropper. She did some speaking and a whole lotta singing. When Fannie Lou was with the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP) in 1964, she was approached by someone in Atlantic City who said, “Fannie Lu, all that stuff that you people are doing in Mississippi is just a drop in the ocean.” Fannie Lou said, “Yes, but the ocean needs our drop.” These two poems are for Fannie Lou Hamer: like a grainy civil rights film from 1963 a blur of hope C.W. Pruitt II October 16, 2006


hope is sometimes difficult to ascertain evanescent to the point that its presence becomes almost completely doubted to exist at all by the believers. Then in the dark recesses of the human heart a molecule of light emerges which quickly explodes in a nuclear-like reaction all directions testify to the power of the light oppression, indeed is the festering ground for, hope, which springs eternal

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. Lets try to place a 1 in the left section on the middle row in the easy puzzle containing 2-3-8. The 1 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 2. The 1 in the center section eliminates the spaces to the left and right of the 3. The space to the right of the 8 is eliminated by the 1 in the left section of the bottom row. The only place left is to the left of the 8. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Birthday Bubbly My April calendar is filled with birthdays of family, friends and neighbors. Several of my Warfleigh Wino’s share the same April birth date so every year we make the time to raise a glass or two together. I’m a fan of sparkling wine any day, but it seems imperative for this celebration. A bottle worth the splurge is the J Vineyards Cuvee 20 Brut. J Vineyards is located in the beautiful Russian River Valley of Sonoma County, California. The Cuvee or blend is that of three grapes that also find their way into authentic French Champagne– Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. The J Cuvee creates a bottle that is similar in style to those prestigious French producers, but adds a touch of California flair. The bubbles are small and strong. The aromas are citrusy with just a hint of yeast. Subtle, smooth, flavors of lemon and pear give way to a crisp dry finish. A bottle will set you back about 30 bucks but the delicious France meets California bubbly is a crowd pleaser for the Midwestern palate. Joyeux Anniversaire chers amis! Surf’s Up ! Cheers!

by Brandt Carter Who Let The Dogs Out? It’s that time of year when you enjoy walking your dog, visiting parks with your friend, taking long rides with their heads poked out of the car window, and dining on the patios of pet-friendly restaurants. Two important pieces of advice are: 1. Check out the Broad Ripple Gazette for pet-friendly venues. They will have a D next to their name. 2. Be sure to practice good etiquette with your dogs. And, remember to never pass your dog off as a highly-trained service dog. In many states it now carries a fine.

Dog Lovers, check out Green Men Art Gallery, 2376 E. 54th Street [OO31 on map], on Saturday, May 11 for an evening of dog portraits I have painted. Celebrate Mother’s Day and Memorial Day at the gallery from 4pm to 9pm with Reggae Music following. Celebrate your connection to your dog(s)! Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street. Visit her web site Email your bird questions to

Soon after the grand opening, Harold’s Chicken, 1904 Broad Ripple Avenue [HH30 on map], closed and put up a sign saying “due to family emergency we are temporarily closed”. That was about 8 weeks ago. Now there appears to be a gas shutoff notice on the door.
