Union Park Plaque
This plaque says, "This tree dedicated as a living memorial of the 150th anniversary of the formation of the United States Constitution by the National Womens Relief Corps Auxiliary to the Grand Army of the Republic Des Moines, Iowa September 4, 1938." The plaque is hard to find. It is under the branch of the large pine tree that was planted there in the center of the photo. The base stone has settled and the plaque is difficult to read. It is in the SE corner of Union Park at E 9th Street and Jefferson Street. Photo taken 4/15/08.
