Veteran’s Memorial Park, Selby, South Dakota

Placed on the courthouse lawn in Selby, South Dakota, the Veteran’s Memorial Park honors 1,223 men and women who fought for our country. The site features 6 black granite tablets featuring the names of the veterans as well as benches and 3 flag poles flying the American, VFW, and Legion flags. Originally, there were only plans for 4 of the granite tablets. Methods for paying for the memorial were put into effect in September 2001 through donations and with a charge of $60.00 per name. Individuals, businesses, organizations cities, towns, and Walworth County started donating, and as of May 1, 2002, $102,405.82 had been received. Because of the popularity of the project, two more granite tablets were added, bringing the total to the 6 that stand today. The granite was imported from Zimbabwe and the names were sandblasted on by Granite Inc, Aberdeen.
