The Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum was built in 1918 to honor soldiers and sailors who fought in the Civil War and Spanish-American War. Built in the Classic Revival architectural style, the building is made truly unusual and striking by the brick wings on either side of the poured concrete front, the curved corner of which give the building an Art Deco Flair, says the Indiana Historic Architecture Home Page. The Coliseum is now used for sports, exhibitions, stage plays, concerts, meetings and receptions.
