History of Indianapolis

In 1821, the Indiana General Assembly founded Indianapolis as the state capital. Alexander Ralston was commissioned to design the new capital. The original plan called for Indianapolis to be only one square mile, and right in the center, he placed the Governor's Circle where the Governor's mansion was to be built. However, no governor ever lived in this mansion due to its lack of privacy as the center of the city. Therefore, the mansion was demolished and eventually the very recognizable Monument Circle was built as a tribute to veterans of the American Revolution. It is now the center of the city known as the "Crossroads of America."
