Historic Village

Founded in 1852 and incorporated as a town in 1866, Zionsville is perhaps best known for its historic downtown area, referred to as the Village. All of the important styles of architecture of the last two centuries are represented in the Village; you can pick up a walking tour guide at the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce office. In the heart of the Village lies our brick Main Street, lined with shops and restaurants.
