Veterans Memorial Hall
This building was completed in 1915 and has been a meeting place for the GAR and many other veterans' organizations. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. The interior includes Civil War artifacts and a plaque with General John Logan's Memorial Day proclamation. Just outside the Hall is the Soldiers and Sailors Park along the west side of the Cedar River which includes a fountain dedicated to the Union Soldiers in the Civil War. The Hall is tucked between the large parking ramp on Commercial Street and the River. Photos taken 9/7/10.
