IN Attractions

Soldiers & Sailors Monument

The Soldiers & Sailors Monument, towers the heart of downtown Indianapolis, at 284 feet tall. Designed by German Architect Bruno Schmitz, the first cornerstone of the monument was laid in 1889. This neoclassical monument was completed in 1901 to honor the Hoosiers, state veterans of the American Revolution.

A list of Indiana soldiers, a national flag, copies of newspapers and the Constitution of Indiana, are housed in a copper box inside the monument.

While in Indianapolis, enjoy strolling the grounds of Monument Circle to view the monument, its pristine fountains and the bronze statues of William Henry Harrison, George Rogers Clark, James Whitcomb and Oliver Morton. The statues are located on the side of the monument.

Visit the Colonel Eli Lilly Civil War Museum, located in the basement of the monument, to learn more about the history of the American Civil War.

For an incredible birds-eye view of the city, climb the 331 stairs or take the elevator to the observation deck, at the top of the monument. Don't forget your camera to capture a great shot of "the Circle City." If visiting downtown Indianapolis during the holiday season, join in the annual Circle of Lights tradition, to see over 4,500 lights adorn the monument.
