NotesThis is the central square of the famed Indiana World War Memorial Plaza. Its centerpiece is a black granite obelisk, rising 100 feet above a pink granite base. At night it is illuminated by multi-colored lights, reflected through spraying fountains which create a perpetual mist above the surrounding pool. At the left is the Scottish Rite Cathedral and in the background the national headquarters of the American Legion and the Central Public Library.
