Spooner Veterans' Memorial
(Across from Ton'y Riverside)
Spooner, WI 54801
The Spooner Veterans' Memorial is located in Waterfront Park on the south side of Spooner. Dedicated in 2004, the memorial consists of six jet-black stones, 8 feet wide and 5 1/2 feet high. Each stone is inscribed with up to 750 names of Spooner area veterans. Currently there are more than 3,700 names inscribed on the stones.
In addition to the memorial stones, the floor of the memorial is laid with 900 granite paver stones set between 6,000 decorative stones. Individuals and groups can order paver stones engraved with a name or message. The memorial also features a bell tower with a four-foot eagle on top. Eight flags fly above the memorial - the American, Wisconsin and POW-MIA flags, as well as flags for each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.
The newest addition to this park is the replica Tomb of the Unknown Solider, with an Army Old Guard standing guard next to the tomb just as they have done since 1937 in Arlington National Cemetary.
