This website displays the record for each brick and paver on the Plaza of Heroines, a mosaic of bricks and granite pavers that forms the entryway to Carrie Chapman Catt Hall on Iowa State's central campus.

The center of the plaza features a large granite paving stone honoring Carrie Chapman Catt, a distinguished alumna of Iowa State’s class of 1880. Surrounding that stone are smaller granite pavers and bricks that honor more than 3,750 women and organizations who have made an impact on individuals, families, communities and society.

To honor a woman on the Plaza of Heroines, submit an order today or contact the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics for more information.
