Civil War Monument
PRINT THIS INFORMATION
This is an excellent monument with a Civil War soldier and names engraved of veterans from this area. There are over 700 names listed. It is granite and about 20 feet high. Many of the names are soldiers from the Iowa 4th and 29th Infantry Regiments but there are many from other Iowa regiments and from other states. It is located in a little park NE of the business district and near the courthouse. At one time it was next to the old courthouse which burned down in 1963. The first photo was taken 4/19/10. On 10/4/15 the monument was re-dedicated by members of the SUVCW. The second photo shows a firing salute by the Guthrie Center American Legion. The third photo is of members of the SUVCW and its Auxiliary. On a return visit 6/29/18, it was noted that a nice Veterans area had been included west of the monument.
