Created By: Indiana War Memorials
American Legion Mall stretches for two blocks, from North Street to St. Clair Street. It was designed to give perfect line of sight from the Indianapolis/Marion County Public Library, through the mall, to the north face of the Indiana War Memorial. Efforts to influence the American Legion to locate their headquarters in Indianapolis originally led to the creation of the Indiana War Memorial Plaza Historic District in the late 1920s. The Mall itself is a large open expanse of grass that is slightly lower than the rest of the property. It provides a wonderful view of the Indiana War Memorial and the city skyline. The space hosts a wide variety of activities, from veterans’ ceremonies to concerts, picnics and games. At the north end of the mall stand the American Legion buildings and the Cenotaph.
