Scattered throughout the Carmel Arts & Design District, the collection of sculptures creates a wonderful walking tour of the area. The majority of the statues are by J. Seward Johnson whose lifelike creations draw attention as visitors to the area pose with the statues for photographs, or just for laughs.
Carmel Clay Historical Society - Monon Depot Museum
The Carmel Clay Historical Society (CCHS) was formed in 1975 by a group of local residents as part of the nation’s Bicentennial celebration and dedicated the study of Carmel and Clay Township’s history. That same year the City of Carmel gave the historic 1883 Monon Railroad Depot to the society, which it maintains today as a museum of local history. The Carmel Clay Historical Society is dedicated to enriching the lives of the residents of Clay Township and the city of Carmel by collecting, preserving, and interpreting the history of the Monon Train Depot, the city of Carmel and Clay Township, and the people who have lived here.
