Indiana War Memorial

To Vindicate the Principles

Indianapolis is second only to Washington, DC, in war memorials. Actually, while DC has more in number, we devote more land for ours. Take that, DC.

The Indiana War Memorial Plaza consumes five full blocks of prime Downtown space, between the federal courthouse on New York St. and the Indianapolis Public Library on St. Clair St.

If you’re ever in Indianapolis and want a good place to make some photographs, head on down to the Indiana War Memorial Plaza. If you’re there on a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday between 9 am and 5 pm, be sure to tour the museum inside the Indiana War Memorial itself.

    • Thanks! If you’d like to see more from this roll, click the image to see it on Flickr and then < and > through the photos around it. The lens really is this distortion free! I did Photoshop a tiny bit, to crop and to tweak contrast a little.

  2. I visited Indy for a friends son’s wedding about a year ago and found it beautiful. Wish I had more time to photograph there. Really nice shot by the way.
