Three historic locations:
The Indy Bike Hub YMCA opened in the Indianapolis City Market, built in 1886, with a unique focus on cycle commuters to downtown Indy in 2011. In January 2018, the center was renamed the YMCA at the City Market to better reflect its historic location.
In 1993, the YMCA opened the YMCA at the Athenaeum in the then, 100-year-old Athenaeum building, circa 1893. A renovated Welcome Center will be dedicated later this year.
In 1997, the YMCA opened its first new center in 30 years on the grounds of Fort Benjamin Harrison. The military base and Benjamin Harrison YMCA are both named the 23rd president of the United States, who lived in Indianapolis.
Other milestone moments:
In 2002, the Fishers YMCA became the first newly-built YMCA facility in over 40 years. This same year, the Baxter YMCA was devastated by a tornado, leaving extensive damage to the building. Repairs were made, and the facility re-opened stronger and livelier.
The YMCA at City Way, later named the Irsay Family YMCA, opened as a third location in downtown Indy in 2015.
The OrthoIndy Foundation YMCA will be the sixth new YMCA this decade when it opens this December.
