Indiana's 11th congressional district

Indiana's 11th congressional district was a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives in Indiana. In its final configuration, it covered most of the southern portion of Indianapolis. It was eliminated as a result of the 1980 Census.

It was last represented by Andrew Jacobs, Jr. After the 1980 census, most of its territory became the 10th District, and Jacobs transferred there.
