Andrew Bayne Memorial Park was dedicated and designed in the years right after the end of World War I. During construction, community groups worked to raise funds to purchase monuments to commemorate those who died in the first great war. Later, additional plaques were added to honor veterans of more recent wars.

Learn more about the monuments and the veterans honored below and be sure to check out our interactive map showing the location of each memorial.
