The Indiana World War Memorial Plaza is a beautiful structure, originally built in honor of the soldiers who fought in World War I. The memorial was originally conceived in 1919, with the hopes of luring the American Legion to make their headquarters there. Despite the cornerstone having been laid, some parts of the memorial plaza were not completed until 1960. The centerpiece of the plaza is the memorial building itself, standing at 210 foot (64 m) tall, the design is based on the ancient Mausoleum of Halicarnassus in present-day Turkey. Inside the memorial, visitors will find a museum, auditorium and shrine room. Other features of the plaza include American Legion buildings, an obelisk and memorial cenotaph.
