Franklin County is known primarily for its beautiful scenery and its accessibility by river, which allowed it to be settled from Cincinnati in the 1790s.
In contrast to the rest of the state icons, the Franklin County piece is not attached to the Indiana State Museum building, but is suspended from a bridge that crosses down Indianapolis’ Central Canal. It is constructed of copper, bronze, and stainless steel and depicts a bridge support structure holding a canoe.
