image number:



The trailer court located at upper-left at the corner of Dunn and 17th Street (just below and to the left of the football stadium) is the old Salmon's Trailer Towne (1200 North Indiana Avenue) that was owned by William and Margaret Salmon. In 1966, Mr. Salmon sold the trailer court to the Hoosier Realty Corp. of the IU Foundation. Part of this site today (2014) is the IU Credit Union. A March 9, 1966 IU News Bureau release regarding the sale notes that "The eight-acre enterprise...includes a residence, utility buildings and utility services for 100 trailers."
