Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra

If you are more of the classical type, I would recommend stopping by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. It serves the best classical music. If you appreciate the sound of music that shows a story in the music, you should see the orchestra. The music is just lovely to listen to. It has many stringed instruments that bring out a beautiful sound that people can listen to when stopping by.

History of Indianapolis

Indianapolis was founded in 1821 and advanced from there. Following the war of 1812, the U.S. government secured the Treaty of St. Marys in 1818 opening Central Indiana to European American settlement. Alexander Raltson assisted Pierre L'Enfant in designing Indianapolis. Lockerbie Square best illustrates Pre-Civil War Indianapolis. Michigan Road became the main north-south land route of this early era, connecting Indianapolis to Madison, Indiana city on Lake Michigan. Now going to sports, an interesting fact would be that the colts, that are so much loved by Indianapolis, were once the Baltimore Colts, but found out that they work better in Indianapolis in 1984 when they switched. another interesting fact is that Payton Manning used to play for the Indianapolis Colts.
