Aerial of 10th Street Memorial Stadium and Surrounding Area

description:

The view is from the south looking toward the north. The first road directly east of Memorial Stadium is Stadium Drive. The next road to the east is Jordan Avenue showing its track before it was redirected to link up with Jordan Avenue north of Tenth Street. Once Jordan Avenue was redirected the northern end of the driveway directly west of Wright Quad was also redirected to empty on to Jordan Avenue just south of Tenth Street.

The larger football field to the south of Memorial Stadium, and directly east of the Wildermuth Fieldhouse, is what was known as Indiana Field. The IU football team played its 1924 home games on this field.
