    Book details

Carmel started as a small trading post and farming community in 1836 but has long been regarded as a gateway to Indiana s capital city. The nickname North Gate of Indianapolis was adopted by Carmel s centennial committee, reflecting the town s appreciation of the big-city association. Carmelites could enjoy the charm of small-town living along with the amenities of a large city the distance of a short train ride. For decades, Carmel remained nearly unchanged from its one-stoplight status. The 1950s marked the start of major changes. Affordable automobiles and better roads helped create the demise of the railroad to Carmel but enhanced the suburb s appeal to families. With the ease of transportation to Indianapolis and a reputation for excellent schools, Carmel began to witness a steady migration of new residents. By 1975, the town had experienced the beginning of a housing boom and increased its size at least tenfold by 2006. As a result, Carmel has a new persona, a city independent of its big sister to the south with its own healthy business environment and cultural attractions.'
