Pan American Plaza

Pan American Plaza

Located between Union Station and the RCA Dome, Pan American Plaza was built to commemorate the Pan American Games held in Indianapolis in 1987.
The structure includes a 12‑story office building, two Olympic-size indoor ice skating rinks and a brick plaza adorned with fountains and landscaping. The plaza is often used for outdoor music performances and festivals.

Christ Church Cathedral

Built in 1857 on Monument Circle, this Episcopalian house of worship is the oldest church building in Indianapolis.
An excellent example of the English Gothic "country church" style of architecture, it has steep gables, tall windows with pointed arches, a spire, bell tower and in the interior, wooden trusses and stained glass by Tiffany.

James Whitcomb Riley Home and Lockerbie Square

This 1872 home, a National Historic Landmark, is considered by historical experts to be one of the most perfectly preserved Victorian houses in the United States. It was here that Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley spent the last 23 years of his life. Lockerbie Square, where the Riley home is located, is a restored 19th-century downtown residential area. The oldest Indianapolis neighborhood to be included in the National Register of Historic Places, Lockerbie is characterized by old-fashioned street lights, a cobblestone street and many restored homes, condominiums and apartment buildings.

Scottish Rite Cathedral

The International Association of Architects designated this downtown Gothic-Tudor structure, containing a 54-bell carillon and a 7,000-pipe organ, as "one of the seven most beautiful buildings in the world" shortly after completion in 1929.
Today, the cathedral is a site for banquets, meetings and performing arts.
