Wilson County Veterans Memorial, Fredonia – Kansas Tuesdays January 14, 2020

I went looking around Fredonia in Wilson County this week for Kansas Tuesdays and found Wilson County Veterans Memorial, Fredonia: ks-fredonia2.civicplus.com/164/Wilson-County-Veterans-Memorial. Found a lot less than expected.

The Wilson County Veterans Memorial

The newest landmark on the Fredonia square is the Wilson County Veterans Memorial. Located on the northwest corner of the Courthouse lawn, the memorial is funded through private donations and fees for listing names on the walls.

The County provided the land for the memorial but the project was managed by Ralph Holland at the Timmons Funeral Home. For more information contact Timmons Funeral Home at (620) 378-4111.

Donations can be made online through the National War Memorial Registry at  www.nationalwarmemorialregistry.org/memorials/wilson-county-veterans-memorial
