On June 7, 1920, Indianapolis marked it's centennial. The significance of that date represents the day in 1820 when the site commissioners met at John McCormick's log cabin and formerly voted to locate the new capital at the junction of White River and Fall Creek.
The kick-off for the 1920 fete was a mass meeting at Tomlinson Hall on Saturday June 5 with a formal address by Mayor Charles W. Jewett. On June 6, the day began with church services and a matinee and evening musical performance at the Fairgrounds Coliseum featuring a 400-voice choir, soloists and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
Beginning in June 2020, Indianapolis will come together once again in celebration of the place we call home.
