Civil War Monument
This Civil War plaque is located in Estes Park in Iowa Falls. It was dedicated in 1932. Thanks to Ron Rittel for information about this monument including a copy of the original documents. While the boulder was donated, the total cost to move the boulder, pay for the plaque and erect the monument was $74. It is located in the SE corner of Estes Park which is a block north of the business district at corner of Estes and Stevens Streets. Photos taken 8/28/08. In 2015 a copy of an old postcard of a Dahlgren cannon was received from Danny Krock. The inscription on the card says that it was located in Central Park and we believe this is a previous name for Estes Park. The cannon is not there today and we presume it was melted for scrap during World War II.
