Venue Description

The National Headquarters of The American Legion is a large, four-story building located near the Indiana War Memorial Plaza, a five-block area in downtown Indianapolis listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building features Indiana limestone and is considered one of the finest structures of its kind. The $2.5-million headquarters building is a gift from the people of Indiana.

The American Legion Mall is right next to National Headquarters. It features a sunken garden with a cenotaph and four art-deco columns topped with stylized golden eagles. Built in 1931, the cenotaph is a tribute to Hoosiers who gave their lives in World War I.

National Headquarters includes the offices of the national commander, national adjutant and executive director. It also houses the historical archives and library, the National Executive Committee room, art gallery, museum, finance operations, editorial offices for The American Legion Magazine, Dispatch and Online Update , as well as offices for Internal Affairs, Americanism, Children & Youth, Public Relations, and Convention & Meetings.
