World’s Largest Christmas Tree from the 20th floor of the Sheraton Hotel

The World’s Largest Christmas aka Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument sits on a three acre plot of land that Indianapolis city planner Alexander Ralston originally deemed “Governor’s Circle.” Intended to be the location of the Governor’s residence, a mansion was built on the Circle in 1827. However, because of the very public local and very shoddy construction, no Governor ever called the circle home and the mansion was razed in 1857.
