Monument Circle, Indianapolis: 30 reviews and 41 photos
At the southwest corner of Monument Circle sits the James Whitcomb statue by John H. Mahoney.
Whitcomb (1795-1852) was a former governor of Indiana. He was very elegant and brilliant. Under his leadership, the Indiana Hospital for the Insane, Indiana Asylum for the Education of the Deaf and Dumb, and the Indiana Institute for the Education of the Blind were created (great politically correct names, I might add). He resigned as governor in 1848 to serve in the US Senate.
The plaque reads:
James Whitcomb. Governor of Indiana. Mexican War Period. 1846-1847.
Address: Monument Circle, Meridian Street & Market Street
