Another side of the Soldiers & Sailors Monument in downtown Indianapolis. Designed by Bruno Schmitz and constructed between 1887 and 1902, this limestone monument is 284 ft 6 in tall includes sculptures by Rudolf Schwartz (who created the figures on the structure's sides), George Brewster (who created the figure of Victory that caps the monument, as well as two astragals) and Nicolaus Geiger (who created the Army astragal). The Col. Eli Lilly Civil War Museum is housed in the lower level. Observation level is 330 steps up or take the elevator to step 290.
Every Christmas season the monument is decorated as an enormous Christmas tree. The tree lighting ceremony is held the day after Thanksgiving. The decoration of the monument uses 4,784 lights and 52 strands of garland. More than 100,000 people attend the ceremony and the event is televised to an even larger audience.
