About the the Park

The All Veterans Memorial Park broke ground on June 17th, 2005 on Walnut Road, just north of the Stephenson Nursing Center. The mission of the All Veterans Memorial Park is to honor and remember all the veterans of Stephenson County who have honorably served in the United States armed services by placing a memorial on designated, sacred ground in Stephenson County.

To register a Veteran to be included in the park on the appropriate wall,
please see our Register a Vet Page.

Ten years of dedication and generosity have brought All Veterans Memorial Park of Stephenson County from a vision to fruition. Many aspects of the park have yet to be completed, and donations and memoriams are needed at this critical juncture. We are actively seeking donations to support of this Park, please see our Sponsorship Page.
