Civil War Soldier
This monument has beautiful red polished granite. It is about 20 feet high and was dedicated in 1917. In front of the monument is a time capsule to be opened in 2033. This seems to be a fashion in Taylor County as others also had time capsules. There are also pavers with names of soldiers from the region. Gravity is 6 miles north of Bedford and lies west of Highway 148. Take Main Street north to a city park on the edge of town. Photos taken in July, 2010.
