This is dedicated to all who died in the Irish famine in the mid-19th century. It's a beautiful, haunting structure. When walking around it, look in the faces of the people. Looks to me like a mixture of horror and hope.

The Memorial includes a history of the famine, and the circumstances behind it. Just to give you a little perspective on what happened there.

Kinda makes you think, doesn't it?

Address: Chestnut Street, between Front & Columbus
