Memorial to the Veterans

It is time to honor and bring grateful recognition to our Veterans.

The Memorial to the Veterans is located at the Indiana County Historical Museum beside Memorial Park in Indiana, Pennsylvania. The Museum includes a military display area and large meeting/media room, with appropriate handicap accessibility.

Decorative pavers honoring any veteran by name may be designated with a $100.00 or more contribution received through April 1, 2011. Dedication of the Veterans' Tableau is planned for Memorial Day 2011.
