War Memorial Plaza and American Legion Mall

The mausoleum-style limestone and marble memorial pays homage to Hoosiers killed during World Wars I and II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. The Shrine Room, with 24 stained-glass windows, is a magnificent architectural setting for a 17-by-30 foot American flag suspended from the center of the room.

A military museum in the basement allows visitors to follow the history of Indiana soldiers from the Battle of Tippecanoe through the most recent conflicts. North of the memorial is the American Legion Mall, a park-like setting that includes the American Legion State and National Headquarters, as well as the Vietnam, Korean and World War II memorials.

The mall is a popular site for festivals and events. Also located on the grounds areVeterans’ Memorial Plaza, where the flags of all 50 states fly, and University Park, which features the DePew fountain and statues of Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Harrison and Schuyler Colfax.
