One of the crown jewels of the city is the Meridian Street Historical District, which borders the east side of the Butler Tarkington neighborhood.  The Meridian Street Foundation (MSF) is an all-volunteer neighborhood association that focuses upon the North Meridian Street corridor between Westfield Boulevard and 40th Street. They support the Meridian Street Preservation Commission, and help home and property owners in the area follow the Design Guidelines.

You may not know it, but many Butler Tarkington residents reside in the Historical District, either in the Primary or Secondary area. To find out if you are in the District, please check this map for more information. If you reside in either area, additions and/or improvements to your house may be subject to the Design Guidelines referred to in the previous paragraph.

For more information about the Foundation, please visit the Meridian Street Foundation web site.
