Columbus is a delightful town, well known for its architectural sites, gardens and art. We walked about the town and saw some of the "Seven Wonders of Columbus."
We went through the nearly vacant Commons Mall (nothing there but a small Sears store) and into the large commons area that contained some unusual limestone pillars. This is the Bartholomew County Veteran's Memorial, designed by Maryann Thompson Architects in 1997. It consists of 25 limestone pillars, each 40-feet tall. The names of 172 veterans from the county that lost their lives are engraved in the stones.
