Martin Rudisill House
1443-1445 North Park Avenue
This large Italianate cottage still retains some of its original details, such as brackets and decorative rope edge moulding, although the original porch has been replaced. It was constructed for Martin L. Rudisill and his family.
No information is available on him. His daughter, Margaret A. Rudisill, studied art under Jacob Cox, an early Indiana artist. She exhibited her works in Indianapolis, Chicago and St. Louis, and her painting "The Goose Girl" is considered her finest work. She and her sisters Sarah and Sallie lived here until the 1930s.
