Drill Ground Plaque
This plaque marks the spot where the first volunteers from Jefferson County drilled in 1861. The base of the monument had broken up and the plaque was placed on the large granite boulder shown. There was a dedication on May 11, 2019 with speakers shown in the final photo. Thank you to Dick DeAngelis (sitting on left in photo) for sending photos and for information about this wonderful restoration of the monument. It is in Howard Park one block north of the Courthouse at corner of Grimes and North Main Streets. The close-up photo was taken 8/6/10 - the others at the dedication on 5/11/19.
