Medal of Honor Memorial

Medal of Honor Memorial

The only memorial designed to honor recipients of the nation’s highest military honor is in downtown Indianapolis. The memorial honors Medal of Honor recipients, awarded by Congress for military valor.

The one-acre memorial is located on the north side of downtown’s Central Canal in White River State Park and represents 15 different conflicts, ranging from the Civil War to Somalia, and is comprised of 27 curved walls of glass, each between seven and 10 feet high.
Each day at dusk, a sound system plays recorded stories of medal winners or of the conflicts in which they fought.

Law Enforcement and Fire Fighters Memorial

Located on the west side of the Indiana Statehouse, this $1 million memorial honors Hoosier police and firefighters who’ve lost their lives in the line of duty.
The crescent-shaped park features statues inscribed with the names of more than 600 fallen heroes.
