Monument pool may return

April 24, 2013

    County Historian Louise Wolpert and Maintenance Head Dave Meyer came before the county commissioners on Monday to give a report and make a request on behalf of the Peace Memorial Committee.
    Wolpert reported that the Peace Memorial by the courthouse might well be the first of its kind, and is approaching its 100th anniversary, in October. She said that the committee believes this deserves to be celebrated.
    Currently, plans are in the works to reinstall the pool and waterfall that were originally part of the memorial, as well as a replica of the plaque that was displayed on the memorial. It was discovered that the original plaque was made from the metal of a battleship, so it was removed for safekeeping. Additionally, the committee would like to add a brick sidewalk and a 3-4 foot tall wall to honor servicemen.
