Merriam Historic Plaza

Merriam Historic Plaza serves as the gateway to the City of Merriam and is a welcome respite along a heavily-traveled interstate that cuts through the heart of the city. Designed to pay homage to Merriam Park 1880, Merriam Historic Plaza was built in 2006 by BNIM Architects. The 1.6 acre site features a 12-station paved walking path outlining the history of Merriam from pre-settlement to current day, and the 2,300 sf building houses the office of the Merriam Visitors Bureau, which also offers meeting space rentals for events and meetings.
