Indiana World War Memorial Plaza

While visiting the Capital City of Indianapolis, schedule plenty of time to learn about its rich history. Make your way to the center of downtown Indianapolis to tour the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, the USS Indianapolis National Memorial and the Indiana World War Memorial Plaza.

This five block plaza, encompassing twenty-four acres of land, is the second largest area containing monuments devoted to veterans, following Washington D.C.

As early as 1919, plans were made to construct the plaza. By 1921, the plaza was dedicated with the first cornerstone laid, beginning the construction project. The plaza is home to the American Legion Mall, containing two buildings used by the American Legion, including one for the American Legion national headquarters, and Cenotaph Square, a sunken garden with a granite cenotaph in the center.

Veterans Memorial Plaza features an 100-foot granite obelisk and a fountain, while University Park features statues of Benjamin Harrison, Abraham Lincoln and Schuyler Colfax and the Depew Memorial Fountain. The 210-foot tall neoclassical Indiana World War Memorial Building, the centerpiece of the plaza, honors World War I Hoosier veterans and contains the Indiana War Memorial Museum. Be sure to view the beautiful Shrine Room, containing the Star of Destiny and an Altar of Consecration below the United States flag.
