Avon

OVERVIEW

Avon is a small, family-focused community. The area has experienced a large amount of growth since the early 1990s due to its business-friendly location and well-respected educational system, which placed in the top 25% of all Indiana schools for its statewide testing scores and graduation rate. Avon is well-suited for commuters who work in Indianapolis and the new growth has made way for a great deal of new housing options as well.
