Veterans Memorial Park

Veterans Memorial Park in Piqua honors 160 military veterans who died in battle covering wars beginning with WWI up to present day. These names are inscribed on a black marble obelisk.

In addition, it also includes the names of over 3,800 veterans, living or deceased who live (or used to live) in the greater Piqua area. These names are inscribed on brick pavers surrounding the black marble obelisk.

It began in 1991, when a Veterans’ Memorial Committee was organized to promote and establish a memorial area to honor military veterans in the Piqua area.

The memorial was constructed at a cost of $125,000 and is situated on a 1.4-acre plot at the intersection of Washington Avenue and State Route 66, adjacent to Forest Hill Cemetery. The monument was dedicated on November 6, 1993 with Col. William Baugh as the keynote speaker.

As of today, any veteran from the local area can add their name to a brick paver by contacting the Piqua Chamber of Commerce.

Note: These include only the names inscribed into brick pavers, they do not include the names of 160 veterans who died in battle, originally inscribed on the black sculpture...

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
