The Crossroads of America can be found in central Indiana. The city is popular for the Indianapolis 500 race, the Indianapolis Colts, and the Indiana Pacers. In 2011, the population was approximately 885,164, and in the Midwest, it is the second most populated city. In the United States, it is the fifteenth.
Founded in 1821, “Naptown”, as it was sometimes called, was designated as Indiana’s government seat and was platted adjacent to the White River by Elias Pym Fordham and Alexander Ralston. Dedicated in 1902, the Soldier’s and Sailor’s monument would become the symbol of the city.
A stop on the underground railroad until the great migration, “Railroad City” had one of the highest black populations of any of the other northern United States cities. The Hoosier State unfortunately also has a past that is sad. When D.C. Stephenson came on the scene in the Ku Klux Klan, the group became a powerful social and political organization. Over 40% of the towns native-born white males, at the height of the KKK claimed membership within the Klan.
The “Amateur Sports Capital of the World” came to be known as a destination for sports tourism. The Hoosier Dome was built in the 1980’s along with the Indiana University Natatorium, Major Taylor Velodrome, the city’s Tennis Center, and Carroll Track and Soccer Stadium. Because the Hoosier Dome was built, the Baltimore Colts ended up relocating to here. The Pan American games of 1987 were also hosted here.
The development also brought about the creation of Victory Field, the city’s Zoo, Circle Centre Mall, and Conseco Fieldhouse. The Col. H. Weir Cook Terminal which was the new airport terminal and the Lucas Oil Stadium were also built here. In 2011 the Indiana Convention Center was also completed.
