Significance: The Indianapolis Division of the Indiana Central Canal is possibly the oldest remaining man-made structure or facility in Indianapolis-Marion County. The canal is listed on the Indiana State Register of Historic Places. On August 11, 1971, the American Water Works Association recognized the canal between 18th Street and the headwaters at Broad Ripple as an American Water Landmark. In 1975, the canal was also cited by the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana, as part of a detailed neighborhood survey which focused on the downtown segment of the canal. The Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission has also cited the canal as historically significant in a broad brush survey of potential National Register sites in Indianapolis-Marion County.
