With its selection as Indiana's capital in 1821,

Indianapolis was destined to become a major

Midwestern hub. Through the decades that

followed, the Circle City led Indiana into its golden

age, when the state was one of the largest

industrial and agricultural producers in the nation.

Forced to reinvent itself after the decline of heavy

industry, Indianapolis now supports a diverse

technology- and service-based economy and

proudly proclaims itself the amateur sports capital

of the world.
