Description of Memorial:
This small town memorial is a very nice little memorial place on the main street (Elk Street) in town. It consists of a granite marker engraved with the several Military Services emblems. No other inscriptions are included on and around the marker except as noted above. It looks like there will be some space available for people to purchase and insert engraved bricks in front of the granite slab. The lot on which the marker sits is about 50' x 50' and has nice vegitation around it.

Wars mentioned (Multi-war only): Not listed
