Construction On War Memorial Wall Addition Is Now Underway

Local contractor Bob Winders is spending the latter part of the week digging space and setting footers for a new addition to the Owen County Veterans Memorial Wall on the west lawn of the Owen County Courthouse. Winders explained that concrete and steel would be used to construct the wall by the end of next week, weather permitting.

Currently, Owen County Veterans Service Officer Ron Morley has received 42 reservations for limestone blocks engraved with names of Owen County veterans to be part of the wall. Blocks will be available for purchase until the wall space is full, with more than 600 block spaces available. There are approximately 800 names present on the existing wall. To purchase a memorial brick at a cost of $75 each, contact Ron Morley at 829-5027, or Mike Harvey at 829-9354. (Staff Photo by Michael Stanley)
