The history of Indianapolis can be traced back to the summer of 1820 when dozens of families-built cabins and established a small settlement along the east bank of the White River. To take advantage of western migration, Commissioners were mandated to locate the new capital as near as possible to the center of the state. The legislature approved the site at White River and Fall Creek as the new capital in early 1821.
The Soldiers and Sailors monument has come to symbolize the city of Indianapolis. This National Historic Landmark, which was formally dedicated on May 15, 1902, is America’s greatest Civil War monument, and it commemorates the valor of Hoosier veterans who served in all wars prior to WWI, including the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Civil War, the Frontier Wars and the Spanish-American War. The monument was the first in the United States to be dedicated to the common soldier. An inscription above the tablets reads: “To Indiana’s Silent Victors.”
Constructed in 1909, the racetrack at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was originally built to be a test track for the many local automobile factories. The oval circuit was the first to be called a ‘speedway’ and is the third-oldest permanent automobile racetrack in the world. Today, the speedway hosts some of the world’s most famous motor racing competitions.
In 1919, the Indiana War Memorial Plaza was dedicated as a location for the national headquarters of the American Legion and a memorial to honor Hoosier veterans. The IWM Commission operates these facilities in pursuit of its primary mission: to commemorate the valor and sacrifice of the United States Armed Forces and to honor Hoosier veterans and Indiana’s role in the nation’s conflicts.
