This home, located at the SE corner of South 6th and B Streets still has inlaid stone (address) inserts. Before the street names in Richmond Indiana were changed in 1881, this home’s address was Marion Street #91. Marion Street was changed to 6th Street and Market Street was changed to South B Street.

South 6th & B Streets.
This historic home at South 4th & D Streets has a corner marker. The marker (appears to be metal construction) has almost rusted away. The address is marked “S. 4th Street” which would indicate this marker is c: 1881 or after. (After the street names were changed). Fourth Street was known as ”Front” Street previous to 1881, and South D Street was called “Vine” Street.

Do you know of any other Richmond homes that have street markers affixed to their corners?
