WASHINGTON, D.C. – A post office in Indianapolis has been named in honor of former U.S. Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana.

U.S. Senators Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) on Thursday announced that President Donald Trump signed legislation that renames the Circle City Post Office at 456 N. Meridian Street in Indianapolis after Lugar. 

“When Senator Richard Lugar passed away last year, Indiana and the entire country lost a giant,” Young said. “I had the privilege of working on Senator Lugar’s staff, and I had a front row seat to history, watching a statesman at work. In 2017, he stood by me as I took my oath of office in the U.S. Senate, and I will never forget his support through the years. Senator Lugar left an impact on Indiana that will be felt for years to come, and today only reaffirms his legacy will continue to live on.”

“Senator Richard Lugar is a towering figure in Hoosier history and one of the greatest statesmen ever to serve in the U.S. Senate: it’s only fitting for us to rename the Indianapolis Post Office after him and glad we got this accomplished,” Braun added.
