“Points of Interest in Columbus, IN”
Twenty five limestone pillars, each 40-feet high, in a five-by-five grid, comprise the Bartholomew County Memorial for Veterans. Engraved on the columns are the names of those who gave their lives, along with excerpts from selected correspondence. Though large, the piece offers a meditative and intimate experience from the letters to and from the soldiers. The memorial was designed by Thompson and Rose Architects and received the Boston Society of Architects Unbuilt Architecture Design Award in 1996.
It’s a really moving memorial. Reading the engraved letters from soldiers who never made it home was a humbling experience. Definitely a great place to visit as you take a walk through Columbus.
