Catacombs under the Indianapolis City Market

The Indianapolis City Market opened in 1886 and  is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  Then it was a farmer's market offering fresh produce.  Now it contains a wide variety of eateries, wine and cheese shoppes, and retailers.  Under the Market are "catacombs" which were originally the the basement and another old building that was built next door.  That building burned down and built over with the basement being sealed off until recently.  We toured the catacombs and here are some pictures.  Some of  them are blurry.  I kinda liked that it gave them a ghostly feel.

Some of the arches were filled in with brick to give additional strength when a new building was built above the basement.
