WWII Honor Roll Monument Dedication

Monday, May 31, 2021

Immediately following the city’s Memorial Day ceremony in Veteran’s Park, the Greater Loveland Historical Society will dedicate the WWII Honor Roll Monument. The memorial was constructed in 1944 as an “Honor Roll” to recognize local men and women who served during World War II. It also served as a central location where family members could leave updates on where their loved ones were serving and how they were doing. Some of those serving lost their lives during the war. After the war, the monument was relocated to allow the construction of the Brown Building in Downtown Loveland (where Montgomery Cyclery is located). It ended up on a local farm on Route 48 and was used as a shed from about 1953 until 2019. It was recognized at an estate sale in 2020 and the museum was contacted. The monument was in good shape and was restored by the museum with the help of local residents and John Hill Construction. Old photos and recollections helped to keep the restoration accurate.
