Herron-Morton Place Park is located in the middle of the neighborhood on Alabama Street between 19th and 20th. A cornerstone project completed by the Herron-Morton Place Foundation in 2003, the park is an evocative tribute to the neighborhood’s history and spirit.

Visitors will notice a large granite boulder which was a gift by IPS School 45 in 1916 to commemorate Camp Morton, a prisoner of war camp during the Civil War. A bronze historic marker also identifies the use of the land during that time.
