Stadium Drive

image number:



This image shows the road and a few of the houses on what used to be known as Stadium Drive. The white house at center actually has an address of 327 North Jordan (the front of the house faces Jordan with this image showing the back of the house). 327 North Jordan was once owned by Professor Lander MacClintock. Stadium Drive ran parallel to Jordan Avenue and was halfway in between the old 10th Street Memorial Stadium and Jordan Avenue. The entire area you are seeing here is now (2012) part of the Herman B Wells Library parking lot. You the viewer are looking toward the southeast corner of the future parking lot. A portion of Stadium Drive became the north-south drive that today (2012) separates the "A" parking lot from the "C" parking lot and dead ends at the dock area of the IU Auditorium/Wells-Metz Theatre on the south end.

Note: The house to the right of the white house was once owned by Alumni Secretary George F. Heighway. This house was moved north from its original site to the site in this image in order to extend Seventh Street around the north side of the IU Auditorium to Jordan Avenue. This extension of Seventh Street was completed sometime between 1949 and 1953. Also, the brick building at far right and just visible through the trees is the building at 109 North Jordan that would eventually house The Black Culture Center.
