Indiana War Memorial

Honoring Hoosier Veterans

Welcome

The Indiana War Memorial Plaza Historic District contains two museums, three parks, and 24 acres of monuments, statues, sculptures, and fountains in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, making the state's capital second only to Washington D.C. in acreage and number of monuments dedicated to veterans. It is also home to the national and state headquarters of the American Legion. The War Memorial Commission operates these facilities in pursuit of its primary mission: to commemorate the valor and sacrifice of the United States Armed Forces and especially to honor Hoosier veterans and Indiana's role in the nation's conflicts.

Bricks of Remembrance Program

The Indiana War Memorials Foundation has launched its "Bricks of Remembrance" program to memorialize veterans. Each brick will be engraved with the name, rank, branch and dates of service of an individual veteran, and placed at Monument Circle, the very heart of the State of Indiana and its capital city of Indianapolis. These dedicated bricks will encircle the Soldiers & Sailors Monument, ensuring that our heroes will not be forgotten by future generations. You can contribute to the placement of as many bricks as you wish for $100 tax-deductible charitable donation for each brick. Bricks will be engraved and installed on a quarterly basis.
