The picture above is of the stained glass rotunda of the Indiana State House. The capitol building was renovated, restored and just overall rescued from numbing drabness in the 1980's. Now it is beautiful, but what has been going on in that building this past legislative season is not at all attractive. It seems that certain people have forgotten that their job is to govern in the best interests of all the people, not just their own. The next pictures show the interior of the main hall and a detail of one of the chandeliers.
The picture below shows a statue of Governor Oliver P. Morton (1861 - 1867), facing east towards Monument Circle. Officially, it is the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, dedicated in 1901 to honor Hoosier veterans of the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War, the Civil War and the Spanish-American War. Located in the center of the city, the Indiana Civil War Museum is located inside the monument.
A couple weeks ago, the statue representing Lady Victory was taken down for much needed repairs and renovation. Plans are underway to remodel the street and sidewalk area around the Circle, but the final design has yet to be determined.
