Legacy Projects > Cruise to the Monument Cruise to the Monument

The 4th annual Cruise to the Monument showcases hundreds of cars owned by auto enthusiasts from across the tri-state area. The event takes place in the midst of the commercial historic district of downtown Angola beneath the gaze of Lady Columbia perched upon Steuben County’s Soldiers’ Monument; a testament of Steuben County’s contribution to the Civil War.

Cruise to the Monument invites auto enthusiasts and visitors to experience vehicles from decades of automobile innovation while enjoying downtown Angola’s distinctive historic atmosphere. This event is a showcase for not only America’s automobile industry, but the great state of Indiana’s place in it, and the contributions of the citizens of Steuben County and the city of Angola to both.
